When someone harms or threatens to harm you, it may be necessary to seek an Order of Protection. An Order of Protection can be issued against a party to a Divorce by the Supreme Court, or against a family member or someone with whom you share an intimate relationship in Family Court.
An Order of Protection can also be granted in a criminal proceeding. An experienced Family Law Attorney can assist you with your Order of Protection in Family Court and Supreme Court.
