Orders of Protection: How to Get a Restraining Order in NY

In New York, an order of protection is a valuable legal tool that a victim of domestic abuse, domestic violence, harassment, or stalking can utilize to avoid further injury or fear of injury.

Known in other states as a "restraining order," an order of protection is a court order which prohibits the person named from contacting or coming within a certain distance of the victim. Should the abuser violate the order of protection, he or she may be arrested immediately and face serious criminal charges.

Restraining Orders and Orders of Protection in New York

Both restraining orders and orders of protection are court orders which protect victims from dangerous individuals who are subjecting them to emotional, physical or sexual abuse of any kind. Domestic violence is frequently the cause for a restraining order or order of protection, but these may be issued to protect victims from stalking or harassment as well.

A temporary order of protection or emergency restraining order may be issued in order to offer a victim immediate protection. In these cases, a hearing will often be held at a later date to determine whether to keep the order in place. At times, a restraining order or order of protection may last for up to two years.
