What Are Orders Of Protection And Injunctions Against Harassment?

Arguments between married couples or boyfriends and girlfriends can sometimes erupt into domestic violence. Sometimes, the stress of a disputed divorce or family law matter can cause a spouse or partner to act in ways that are inappropriate and threatening.

  • Orders of protection: An order of protection is a court order that restricts an individual's ability to contact the party who has requested the order. It is also known as a restraining order. The goal of the order of protection is to help the person feel safe. An order of protection can be taken out against a spouse or another person you have a personal relationship with, such as a family member or significant other.
  • Injunctions against harassment: An injunction against harassment, on the other hand, may be taken out against a casual acquaintance to prevent unwanted contact or harassment.
