If you have been charged with violation of orders of protection, it is important to have competent legal defense.

A seasoned legal defense attorney may be able to persuade the judge that you had a misunderstanding and let the matter pass. You are urged to contact a Brooklyn criminal defense lawyer for energetic help.

Orders of Protection

A court may issue orders of protection in cases where there has been harassment or domestic violence. The order may be against a current or former spouse, party a person has had a child with, family member or person with whom one has had an intimate relationship. Acts for which orders of protection may be issued include stalking, assault, attempted assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. The order may prohibit the other party from committing any of above crimes. The order may also require the party to move out of the house and to stay away from any of the places the complainant frequents such as job, gym or school. The judge may extend the order to include the children and require that any visitation be under supervision.

If you are under an order it is important to follow these rules faithfully. Even if your spouse relents and invites you back, you must get the order lifted before returning. Otherwise the police may arrest you.
