What is an Order of Protection in New York?
An order of protection, sometimes called a restraining order, is a court order that dictates the contact that one person is allowed to have with another person. The specifics of the order could vary depending on the situation. Some requirements might include:
- Stay away from a person including the person’s home, school, and work
- Move out of your home
- Not be armed
- Enforce matters such as custody and child support
The purpose of an order of protection is to keep someone from threatening, harassing, or harming another person.
Who Can Get an Order of Protection?
New York family law provides protection for victims of domestic violence through Orders of Protection. An Order of Protection is specifically for an individual who is experiencing abuse or threats from a spouse, former spouse, blood relative, a person with whom they had a child, or a person with whom they have or had an intimate relationship.
Several forms of abuse may necessitate an Order of Protection, including:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual assault
- Threat of kidnapping
If you or your child has been subjected to any of the acts listed above, you may seek an Order of Protection. Upon approval of your request, the court can issue a restraining order that limits the other party’s contact with you. The order can direct the individual to stay away from your home, place of employment, or your child’s school. It can also restrict the visitation rights of a parent to ensure the safety of your child.
