Orders Of Protection

Orders of protection are used to ensure the safety of domestic violence victims against their abusers. Orders of protection can be obtained by any person who has been the victim of physical violence or lives in reasonable fear of violence at the hands of another person currently living in the same dwelling or who has shared a dwelling within the past two years.

Once an order of protection has been issued by the court, the alleged abuser must comply with its terms. These often include staying out of the dwelling, staying away from the victim and other members of the household and restrictions on what type of contact, if any, is allowed. Failure to comply with the order is a violation of the law and can result in serious criminal penalties.
