Your temporary order of protection will be in force until your next court date, or until a hearing can be scheduled to discuss the terms of the order.
In many cases in New York, a fight gets out of hand, police are called, and a spouse or significant other ends up barred from a shared residence and their belongings, cut off from their children and their parenting duties, and forced to maintain a second residence for a period of time.
It’s extremely difficult for couples, especially when so many couples in this situation obviously have work to do to heal their relationship.
You should strongly consider hiring an attorney who is experienced in dealing with issues of orders of protection. Prosecutors are often loathe to reduce the terms so you can get back to your life, and it’s even more unusual for them to be thrown out entirely, even when your partner expressly asks for the order to be removed.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino are one of the most experienced teams at negotiating better terms for an order of protection. We can help get your family back together.
