Domestic Violence Orders of Protection

You can obtain an order of protection or family offense petition with help from one of the firm's attorneys. An order of protection is a court order that prevents an individual from coming within a certain distance of a home, family, or an individual's place of work in order to provide protection for the petitioner. There are a number of grounds on which an order of protection may be granted, and it is important for you to understand your rights and how this order may protect you and your children or loved ones. Grounds for granting an order of protection include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Disorderly conduct
  • Harassment
  • Menacing
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Assault

If you have been the victim of domestic violence or abuse, then it is important to recognize that this is a ground for divorce in the state of New York. Another issue to be aware of is that an order of protection against your spouse can provide you with significant leverage in a divorce case if you wish to retain custody of your children.
