How Do I Get an Arizona Order of Protection Dismissed or Modified?
Modify or Dismiss an Order of Protection
A protective order is valid for one full year from the date it was served upon you. You are entitled to request a hearing to require the other party to prove his or her allegations in court. You may apply for that hearing at any time before the expiration of that order by filing a request for hearing in the court that issued the order.
After listening to the testimony of witnesses, the court may uphold the protective order in its entirety, may modify the order, or may dismiss the order entirely.
