Orders of Protection

An Order of Protection is a legal document issued by a court to prevent an individual from engaging in certain actions that may harm another person. At Liberty Law, our experienced attorneys work diligently to help clients obtain Orders of Protection when they are facing domestic violence, harassment, or any form of abuse. This legal tool is designed to create a barrier between the victim and the perpetrator, ensuring that the victim can live without fear of harm.

Key aspects of Orders of Protection include:

  1. Prohibited Actions: The order typically outlines specific actions that the restrained party must refrain from, such as physical abuse, harassment, or contacting the protected party.
  2. Stay-Away Provisions: Orders of Protection often include provisions that require the restrained party to stay a certain distance away from the protected party, their home, workplace, and other specified locations.
  3. Temporary Nature: In some cases, Orders of Protection are issued on a temporary basis, providing immediate protection while the court considers a more permanent solution.

No Contact Orders

No Contact orders are similar to Orders of Protection but are often used in situations where the parties involved do not have a domestic relationship. These orders prohibit any form of communication or contact between the parties, ensuring the safety and peace of mind of the victim.

Key features of No Contact Orders include:

  1. Communication Restrictions: The restrained party is prohibited from initiating any form of communication with the protected party, including in-person contact, phone calls, emails, or through third parties.
  2. Consequences of Violation: Violating a No Contact order can result in serious legal consequences, including fines, probation, or even imprisonment.
  3. Duration: No Contact orders may be issued for a specific duration or until further notice, depending on the circumstances of the case.

At Liberty Law, we recognize the sensitive nature of cases involving Orders of Protection and No Contact orders. Our legal team is dedicated to providing compassionate support and effective representation for our clients, helping them navigate the legal process and obtain the protection they need.
