An order of protection is an official legal document that is filed against a former or current family member or household member or any other similar relationship. The order of protection must be signed by a judge and it prohibits the individual from continuing his or her abusive behavior by forcing them to stay at distance. Once taken to court, the order of protection can be modified to suit the needs of your specific situation.
If you have been a victim of domestic abuse or harassment of any kind, you have the right to seek help to issue an order of protection in order to ensure your well-being. An order of protection will initially be temporary and a hearing will be held at a later date to decide whether or not to keep the order in place. The Yost Law Firm will effectively help you apply for an order of protection.
