Queens Order of Protection Lawyers

Whether it’s a situation involving a married couple, people dating one another, or a dispute between family members, it may become necessary to file for an Order of Protection to protect yourself and possibly others. Commonly referred to as a restraining order, it’s a legal tool that can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. However, petitioning the court for an Order of Protection can be complex, so it’s a good idea to team up with a Queens Order of Protection lawyer to ensure all goes well.

Who Can Get an Order of Protection?
Along with married couples or ones who are dating, there are other situations where an Order of Protection can be sought. These include situations where you may be threatened by someone to whom you are related by blood or marriage, a person with whom you have had a child, or a same-sex partner with whom you have been involved in an intimate relationship. Whatever the circumstances, the State of New York does allow that even if you have an Order of Protection against someone that was granted to you by a criminal court, you may still seek one from a family court or even the state Supreme Court as well. However, Since Supreme Court Orders of Protection are often more complex than those from family courts, it’s to rely on the guidance of a Queens Order of Protection lawyer as to what will be for your individual situation.

What Kind of Protection Does the Order Provide?
When you are granted an Order of Protection, the court is granting you protection from a variety of situations and circumstances. For starters, the Order prohibits the person named as the defendant in the Order from going to your home, school, or place of employment. But along with this, it also prevents the person from contacting you or perhaps your children by phone, email, text message, or social media, and is designed to prevent other threatening behaviors like stalking or harassment. And finally, an Order of Protection may order the defendant to move out of the home, follow custody orders, and to not possess firearms or other standard weapons. To make sure every necessary detail is included in your Order of Protection, consult with an experienced Order of Protection lawyer before you ever set foot inside a courtroom.

What Happens if the Order is Violated?
If after being granted an Order of Protection the defendant violates it in some manner, you have immediate legal recourse. In most situations, it’s imperative you notify the police as soon as the violation occurs, since law enforcement in New York has the authority to make an immediate arrest upon violation of the Order. And once you are safe from any potential harm, be sure to contact your attorney and let them know what happened. By doing so, they can discuss the situation with you and if necessary petition the court to make changes to the Order of Protection that will increase the likelihood you will remain safe.

Schedule a Consultation
If you find yourself facing a dangerous situation and are in need of an Order of Protection, don’t attempt to go it alone. Instead, schedule a consultation as soon as possible with a lawyer who has experience and knowledge in this area of law. By doing so, you can not only ensure that no legal mistakes will be made along the way, but you’ll also gain tremendous peace of mind during a very stressful time in your life.
