Question: Does the plaintiff of a protective order need to follow the same order as no contact order can the plaintiff contact the defendant
Answer: Orders of protection are governed by Arizona Statute, Arizona Revised Statutes, Section 13-3602. The purpose is to prevent the defendant from contacting the plaintiff. If the plaintiff contacts the defendant, that defendant may decide to use the contact to argue that an order of protection is not needed. The whole idea behind the statute is to keep the two parties away from one another to prevent violence.
