Frequently Asked Questions

4. Protective Order:

Q: Am I a candidate to obtain a protective order and, if so, how do I go about getting one?

ANSWER: If you or your children’s physical or emotional safety is at risk, you should seek the advice of an attorney or the help of the Court immediately. Take immediate steps to remove yourself and your children from harms way. The Family Court and Criminal Courts in each county in New York State are specially equipped to handle Protective Order applications quickly and usually (if immediate temporary relief is necessary) on the day that the application is received.
