People use order of protection interchangeably with restraining order. Essentially, they are the same thing. To receive an order of protection, you must prove to the court that a person you live with, are romantically involved with or have been romantically involved with is harassing or threatening you.
Harassment could be in the form of stalking or intimidating. Domestic violence is serious. It’s very important that victims get the court involved. The benefit of having a legal document indicating a valid order of protection may prove extremely valuable for future child custody issues, divorces or employment issues.
Because of the seriousness of domestic violence issues, we strongly encourage potential clients to hire a lawyer to ensure the paperwork is filled out properly. Once the legal paperwork is filled out, we will go in front of the judge to make our arguments. Our lawyers are trained on what to say to judges to increase the likelihood of your petition for order of protection being granted. Once the judge grants our petition, we will use our process server to legally serve the defendant.
