An order of protection is issued by the court to limit the behavior of someone who harms or threatens to harm another person. It is used to address various types of safety issues, including, but not limited to situations involving domestic violence. Family courts, criminal courts, and Supreme Courts can all issue orders of protection.
An order of protection may direct the offending person not to injure, threaten or harass you, your family, or any other person(s) listed in the order. It may include, but is not limited to, directing him/her to:
• stay away from you and your children
• move out of your home
• follow custody orders
• pay child support
• not have a gun
Whether you are the Petitioner or Respondent with respect to an Order of Protection, it is in your best interest to hire an experienced and knowledgeable attorney that has handled numerous matters involving Orders of Protection. If not, you run the risk of either not getting the Order of Protection you are seeking or, if you are a Respondent, having an Order of Protection entered against you which could affect you in many ways.
