Powers Law, P.C.

Order Of Protection


An order of protection is an order that is issued by the court for one party to stay away from another. There are two types. One is a “stay away” order, which is one party’s order to stay away from the work, home, school, or business of another person. The other is a “refrain from” order, which means that both parties can be together but the party who has the order against him or her has to refrain from acts of violence, intimidation, threats, and harassment against the other party. We often see both types of orders of protection in domestic violence cases. In other alleged domestic violence cases, where the judge doesn’t see fit to displace one of the parties from his or her home, a judge will issue a “Refrain From” order in order to keep the peace.
