What is an Order of Protection?
An order of protection is an order that is used to protect and benefit a party that is involved in a custody battle or divorce. This type of order will result in the removal of one of the spouses from the home.
An order of protection cannot be used negatively against you in your divorce and you should not fear one, especially when it is needed. These types of orders are issued by the New York courts and protect people from all types of domestic violence and abuse they may face. Some of the reasons for an order of protection include:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Assault or battery
- Reckless endangerment
There are two types of orders of protection in New York. The first type is a Stay Away Order. This order stop the accused person from coming within a certain distance of the victim’s workplace or residence. These orders will often prevent the accused from seeing or being around the victim’s child(ren) and child’s school.
The second type of order is the Refrain From Order. This order states that the accused must refrain from certain behaviors or conduct that may cause problems. In these orders, the accused does not have to stay away from the victim, but he or she cannot make any type of threats or harass the victim.
Temporary and Final Orders of Protection
A temporary order of protection is the first step in the process and is issued when you file for an order of protection. This type of order is in place before the papers are served to the accused. This type of order is ONLY in place until you go to your court date. At this court date, a final order of protection may be granted and this would be a permanent solution.
