An Order of Protection (sometimes referred to as a “restraining order”) can be a necessary measure when you are a victim of domestic violence. Orders of protection can depend upon one’s relationship to the assailant and are specially constructed to address your specific situation. Domestic violence can include many different aggressive and manipulative behaviors, including assault, threats, intimidation, crimes against children, illegal restraint, or custodial interference of a child.
Situations and relationships wherein an order of protection may be appropriate include the following:
If you are found to be eligible and need an Order of Protection, there are two options available. An Emergency Order of Protection helps to protect someone in immediate danger. However, it is only valid for two days, and so it’s advised to seek a more permanent solution concurrently. A Permanent Order of Protection requires a formal hearing in which both parties can present their case.
