How does the Restraining Laws work in Arizona
I assume you're wanting to know about restraining orders.
What is it that you want to know?
Are you wondering how a person gets a restraining order?

Our daughter-in-law has kicked out our Son from their home numerous time. As of today, she is planning to get a restraining order and take their 2 young children out of the state. Can she get this accomplished?
On what basis is she planning to get the restraining order?

That we do not know. When she told him to leave, he pack a bag and left. She doesn't want him near the babies. The babies have been with us for 2 days now and she called him to drive them home. We aren't sure what steps she is going to take next.

His next step should be to immediately retain an attorney. Leaving the marital home can compromise a parent's position in a custody matter. He will want to retain an attorney immediately so that his attorney can evaluate the matter and, if the attorney deems necessary, take a proactive approach to seeking visitation or temporary custody.

She may not have a basis for a restraining order unless there's an issue of domestic violence, harassment, etc. If none of those conditions exist, his attorney may be able to prevent a restraining order from issuing.

When he seeks custody or visitation, his attorney can ask the court to prohibit the mother from relocating the children as well. However, unless a court order to the contrary is issued, a mother can relocate a child given the proper notification. An Arizona law firm has published an article about child relocation at the link below.

Are restraining orders different in each state. We would like to know if indeed she can leave the state with these children?

Please read my previous post. I addressed your question there. If you have any questions or need further explanation, I'm happy to provide further explanation.

Restraining orders do vary by state. That's why I sent you a link to an article about restraining orders in Arizona and explained domestic orders of protection (restraining orders for people who are in intimate relationships).


A parent can relocate the children provided she gives proper notice. The other parent may then object to attempt to prevent the relocation.
