Can I get an order of protection against someone who has one on me?

Yes, if you feel that you are being harassed or threatened by someone who has an order of protection against you, you can ask a judge for an order of your own.

Basic requirements still have to be met – you must demonstrate convincingly that the person is displaying a pattern of behavior that causes you to need such protection.

It’s not a high bar to meet, and courts in New York routinely issue orders of protection for people in a number of circumstances.

If you are caught in a dangerous cycle with a person threatening to have you arrested on an order of protection that you haven’t violated, you may have more options than simply getting your own order.
