Can I extend my order of protection?

Arizona law does not specifically state that a person can extend his/her order. However, often times, if a petitioner applies for a new order before the current order expires, a judge may grant the new order if there is continued fear of the respondent, for example, even if no new incidents have occurred since the current order was issued.
