Domestic Violence

Getting an Order of Protection

How will the Order of Protection work?

  • The order should focus on your specific safety needs. If you have children and are concerned for their safety, you must specifically request custody and visitation restrictions or “no contact” orders.
  • You must call the police every time the order is violated.
  • You should make lots of copies and carry a copy everywhere, especially if it has custody or visitation provisions.
