Orders Of Protection

An order of protection is obtained in the civil courts and is an order that protects a person from someone who is doing harm to them.  Parties themselves, as well as children, may be protected by an order of protection.  An order of protection may be sought for a variety of reasons, including: harassment, stalking, interference of personal liberty, and physical abuse. 

There are different types of orders of protection, including emergency orders, interim orders, and plenary orders.  There are very specific time frames th8726454_lat must be adhered to in order to obtain different orders of protection.   Whether you are seeking an order of protection or an order of protection has already been entered against you, DeVriendt &Associates has the knowledge and skill to adequately present your side of the story to the Court.
