Understanding Orders of Protection

Orders of protection can be issued by the court when it is suspected that one spouse/romantic partner/co-parent has become a threat to the well-being of the other partner or any of their children. Orders of protection don't only occur with domestic violence issues, but when they do, they can have an adverse effect on any coinciding family law matters, such as divorce or child custody.

Orders of protection can be issued in response to:

  • Stalking
  • Harassment
  • Assault or battery
  • Child abuse or neglect
  • Two Types of Orders of Protection

There are two types of orders of protection in New York: "Do Not Harass" and "Full Stay Away" orders. Full Stay Away orders means that the named individual cannot come within a certain amount of feet of the protected individual. Do Not Harass orders allow contact, but can result in legal ramifications if the named individual harasses the protected individual.

Every domestic violence/domestic violence order is different and requires a careful approach. Arevalo Law, PLLC is well-versed in quickly filing for these orders in order to protect clients from potential harm—and in challenging them in the courtroom. No matter what your circumstances are, Arevalo Law, PLLC is ready to partner with you at this difficult time.
