Orders Of Protection

If you or your children are the victims of domestic violence, including physical, emotional or psychological abuse, you may qualify for an order of protection in Family Court, Criminal Court or Supreme Court, which will prevent the abuser from having contact with you or your children.

An order of protection is issued in an effort to stop abuse, harassment, stalking or other types of violence. It prevents a person from coming near you, your home and your workplace. They can also occur when there has been a violation of an existing court order. For example, one spouse may be angry of the exclusive occupancy that was granted of the residence, leading to a heated confrontation and then physical or emotional abuse. There could also be anger due to child or spousal support obligations.
