Orders of Protection in Rome, NY

An order of protection, also known as a restraining order, is a court order that prevents a certain individual from coming within a certain distance of your home, your place of work, your car, and other areas. These orders are court mandated, and they are designed to protect individuals from violence, abuse, and other actions. If you have been the victim of domestic violence, then you may benefit from this restraining order for your future. It is also important to know that domestic violence as a form of inhuman treatment is a ground for divorce in the state of New York.

Seeking legal assistance?

It is important to know that there essentially four types of people that you can obtain this order of protection against through family court:

  • Current or former spouses
  • An individual with whom you have a child in common
  • A family member you are related to by blood or marriage
  • An individual with whom you have been in an intimate relationship

It is also important to know that a violation of an order of protection is a serious matter. If you have an order of protection against someone and this individual violates the order, then you can file a notice of a violation with the court, as well as take other legal action to notify the authorities. The results of a violation can include a jail sentence, probation, arrest, stricter sentencing for additional violations, and many other actions.
