This petition requests amendment of Rule 123, Rules of the Supreme Court, and Rules 7,10,20, 23, 24, 25, 26, 31, 32, 33, 36, and 42 of the Arizona Rules of Protective Order Procedure. During the 2018 53rd Legislature, Second Regular Session, House Bill 2249 became law. The bill modifies statutes that govern Orders of Protection (OP), Emergency Orders of Protection (EOP), Injunctions Against Harassment (IAH), and Injunctions Against Workplace Harassment (IAWH). The modifications take effect January 1, 2020. The Arizona Rules of Protective Order Procedure (ARPOP) guide Arizona courts in the management of these four types of protective orders. To assist courts in implementing the modifications, some of the rules require revision. CIDVC also proposes changes to several rules either to clarify them or to correct omissions.
