NYC Order of Protection Family Courts Lawyers

Domestic violence is a huge issue. Sometimes, individuals will seek protection from the police and prosecutors, while other times individuals will look for an order of protection in New York Family courts. The reasons can vary a lot. It could be that the complainant, or petitioner, doesn’t want the party arrested/want to give up control of their personal life to a prosecutor. Whatever the reason, it behooves you – as both the petitioner, or the person If your need for an order of protection isn’t immediate, and the person your seeking protection from is a family member – then it’s advisable that you get the help of one of our attorneys.

Just because someone assaulted you, or slapped you, doesn’t mean you can get an order of protection, or a restraining order, in a NYC Family Court. In fact, if you want a family court to grant your petition in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or elsewhere, you/your attorney have to draft a document which establishes you and the other party as family.

Who can get an order of protection in Family Court?

  • Anyone related to you in marriage
  • Anyone related by blood
  • Anyone with whom you have a child
  • Anyone you had an intimate relationship with regardless of whether you have terminated the relationship.

In the event the other party isn’t a part of your family, then any crime or offense he/she committed has to be reported to the police, and will be prosecuted by the DA’s office. If there’s an agreement between the parties, the matter can be resolved – otherwise the court will have a hearing, or trial, on whether or not a final order of protection will be issued. It’s critical you understand that nothing is preventing the respondent from filing his/her own petition, or seeking an order of protection against you. Regardless of the situation, if there is not an agreement – then these cases can last for many months.
