In Arizona, a restraining order is called an order of protection (OOP). Restraining orders require that some form of relationship exists between the parties — spouses, family members, former intimate partners, etc. — and that an act of family violence/domestic violence has occurred, such as:
- Physical abuse: such as shoving, hitting, kicking
- Emotional abuse: such as intimidation, abusive language, threats of violence
- Harassment or stalking: such as harassing phone calls, videotaping of private acts, criminal trespass
