Domestic Violence

questions & answers

Question: Is it possible to have a restraining order or protection order without divulging my home address or place of work. I am getting death threats regarding an my girlfriend's ex who has a history of domestic violence. If he knows this information and knows our whereabouts he will take action against it and has no care in the world for the reprocussion of the law including his own life.

Answer: Petitioners for orders of protection are never required to publicly disclose their home or work addresses. Those addresses always may be kept confidential. Different Arizona counties use different forms – but all Arizona counties permit petitioners for orders of protection to choose to restrict the disclosure of their home and work addresses. You will be asked to supply a mailing address to which notices may be sent – but that address need not be your home or work address. You may ask the clerk at the court for assistance.
