Orders of Protection

An Order of Protection may be granted to a person who is the victim of domestic violence, and the alleged perpetrator is related to the alleged victim by blood or marriage or who is involved in a personal relationship with the alleged victim.

A family offense can be any one of the following acts:

1.         Disorderly conduct

2.         Harassment

3.         Aggravated harassment

4.         Stalking

5.         Menacing

6.         Reckless endangerment

7.         Assault

8.         Attempted assault

Each of these offenses has a precise legal definition.  These are the only recognized family offenses in New York state law.  If the acts alleged to be committed do not fall into one of these categories, the Court cannot issue an Order of Protection.

If you believe you need an Order of Protection or have been the subject of an Order of Protection, please contact us to schedule an appointment for a free consultation.

We can counsel you as to how to seek and obtain an Order of Protection, and represent you in Court for any required hearings or proceedings.  We can also advise you as to your rights and options if you are the subject of an Order of Protection, and can represent you in Court at any hearing or proceeding regarding the allegations contained in the request for an Order of Protection.
