Usually in Arizona, a “Preliminary Injunction” is filed along with the “Petition for Dissolution.” The first ruling usually issued by the court is the “Preliminary Injunction Order,” which prevents either spouse from disposing of Community Property (either by selling it or giving it away). This protects both spouses from losing community assets. In addition, one spouse cannot take the children out of state without having written consent, in writing. Finally, it will help prevent either spouse from harassing or engaging in disorderly conduct towards the other spouse.
