Obtaining an Order of Protection

Buffalo Family Lawyer

An order of protection is used to ensure the safety of you and your family from an abuser or other person who is looking to cause you physical or emotional harm. These orders can be obtained by working with a family law attorney from The Law Office of Charles A. Messina.

At my firm, I am prepared to take all necessary actions to ensure that you are safe and that your rights are protected. If you feel that your family is in immediate danger, contact the police and inquire about filing for a protection order from our Buffalo divorce lawyer.

What Happens After a Restraining Order Is Granted?

When an order is granted, the offending individual is required to remain away from you and your family and may be forced to avoid all contact with you as well. If it is your spouse, a protection order may require him or her to move away from the residence and abide by all custody orders.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you can either file a criminal court order or a family court order. In a protection order filed with a family court, you can only file against a former spouse, family member or person with whom you have had an intimate relationship. A Buffalo domestic violence attorney can help you determine the best course of legal action to take.
