What is an injunction against harassment?

An injunction against harassment (IAH) is a civil order that can be issued against someone who is harassing or abusing you (i.e., neighbors, friends, landlords, etc.) except it cannot be issued against someone who you are/were related to, married to, intimately involved with, or lived with.  For those types of relationships, which are listed in full here, you would have to apply for a domestic violence order of protection if you are being harassed.  See our AZ Domestic Violence Orders of Protection page for more information.  

You may file for an IAH if you can show that the defendant has committed harassment as defined by law, including any evidence of harassment by electronic contact or communication.1
