First, don’t take any actions that run counter to the order of protection without approval from a judge.
Don’t call or drop by the home if you have a no-contact or stay-away order.
Work within the courts to get the outcome you need, and work with experienced attorneys who know the ins and outs of domestic and family matters.
You need to petition the issuing court for visitation with your kids.
Your partner/spouse/co-parent will have the opportunity to make a case against allowing you visitation, and depending on the elements in play, they may succeed in their request.
But don’t give up hope. Because courts are strongly predisposed to support the ongoing relationship between parents and kids, patience tends to pay off in these situations.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino have helped thousands of New Yorkers handle custody and visitation matters even when orders of protection are in place.
