Question: Can a person file a order of protection on a live in caregiver and we believe they did this to put the lady I care for in a nursing she is so stressed out over this its causing alot of problems witb her health what can we do to stop this

Answer: Orders of protection may be filed when a relationship exists between the abuser and the abused. A live-in caregiver would qualify under Arizona statute, “the relationship between the victim and the defendant is one of… persons residing or having resided in the same household” (ARS § 13-3601). When a person is served an order of protection, they are called the defendant. If they disagree with an order of protection, it can be contested. The defendant has a right to request a hearing that will be held 5 to 10 days after the written request is filed. Defendants may refer to the Defendant’s Guide Sheet and find the Request for Hearing, Dismiss Order, Cancel Hearing, or Continue Hearing forms on https://www.AZCourtHelp.org/forms/protective-orders-form.
