Order of Protection


What is an Order of Protection?

An order of protection, whether justified or not, can lead to other problems. Though an Order of Protection may look like a simple document at its surface, there are several intricacies that should be reviewed, as one violation can lead to a permanent restraining order or jail time, and additional charges. This is why it is very important to hire an experienced criminal lawyer, who can advise you on what to do next. It is important that you do not attend an Order of Protection hearing without an experienced criminal lawyer.
