If a person is accused of violating an order of protection (a restraining order), then they could find themselves charged with interfering with judicial proceedings (Arizona Revised Statute 13-2810). This is considered a class 1 misdemeanor offense that is punishable by up to one year in jail as well as fines of up to $2,500.
It is possible to get a restraining order removed. In many cases, a restraining order is issued without serious consideration into the facts of the case, and these orders are rarely contested. Not all restraining orders are warranted. If you feel that an order of protection or restraining order has been unjustly issued against you, you can certainly contest the order in an effort to have it removed.
Only a judge can lift a restraining order in Phoenix. It is strongly advised that you never assume that a restraining order is no longer in place unless you have gone through the proper court process to get the order removed.
