How Can an Order of Protection Help?
An order of protection prevents an individual from threatening or harming you and your family members. You will then be protected from various abusive behaviors, such as:
- Inappropriate contact via phone, text, email, letters, or through physical contact
- Child abuse or endangerment
- Assault or sexual assault
An order of protection can also restrict how close an abusive individual may come close to you, your child, your home, you or your child’s school, or your work. The order sets up a safe perimeter that the defendant may not violate.
Protecting Your Children
If your child is facing abuse, you may seek an order of protection on their behalf, depending on the situation. If the defendant is the other parent, and having them remain in your child’s life will be detrimental to the child’s wellbeing, our firm can help you petition a judge for sole custody and seek child support on your behalf.
