In Arizona, Orders of Protection are specifically for protecting persons against domestic violence. An order of protection will only be granted if many of the factors listed for domestic violence are present such as whether the parties have a child in common, have or had a sexual relationship, family members are a few.
A judge can order that you cannot possess firearms If a complaining person asks a judge to prevent you from being able to possess firearms.
The person served with the order has the right to fight the order and the loss of his/her right to possess firearms.

Orders of Protection will not be issued to keep your neighbor from harassing you or any other situation outside of a domestic relations setting.
To protect yourself from anyone else the court may issue an Injunction Against Harassment. In injunction is a complicated way to say “Stop.”
