It’s very important that you report violations when they happen, or when you become aware that they have happened.
Prosecutors strongly object to the legal process being manipulated for personal vendettas, and if you create the appearance, especially over time, of misusing police and the courts to punish an ex or someone else who has mistreated you in the past, you may find yourself in trouble.
Treat an order of protection with great care.
Use it the way it was intended – to provide you with fast, reliable support in the event that a person puts you in danger.
If you believe an order has been violated but aren’t sure what the correct response is, call the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino at 718-599-1111 for a free consultation.
