Orders Of Protection In New York — And What You Need To Know

Protective orders, commonly called orders of protection, in New York, can be issued by both family courts and criminal courts. These orders restrict many different things and can:

  • Prevent you from going to your house
  • Prevent you from contacting loved ones
  • Keep you from visiting your family or other loved ones even away from the home

If you do not follow these orders, even by accident, you can face criminal charges or family court violations. It is important that you understand all of the restrictions in a protective order, so that you are not subject to these additional charges. Even answering a phone call from the person who is the subject of the order of protection can land you in jail. I can offer the guidance you need to remain in compliance with these orders.

I can also help you get protective orders lifted. Orders for protection are often issued based only on the word of an alleged victim. To make sure that your side of the story is told, you need an effective advocate on your side. I will use my advanced trial skills and extensive preparation techniques to craft a powerful argument for you.
