What are the different types of Protection Order?

Civil Antiharassment Order

is for non-domestic situations, between people who are not related by blood or marriage, and don't live together.

No Contact Order (NCO)

is given by a judge as part of a criminal case; when someone is released on bail, arraigned, or sentenced.

Restraining Order

 is more comprehensive than most other orders here, and can deal with issues such as temporary custody, property, spousal support, etc.

Domestic Violence Protection Order (DVPO)

 is usually requested and granted in emergency situations, it can be obtained quickly, 'ex-parte' that is, without the other person being in court, and the court will set a hearing within the next two weeks (14 days) for the person to respond.

What can a protection order do?

  • Order a person to leave a shared residence.
  • Grant someone possession of essential personal effects.
  • Give one parent temporary custody of children.
  • Set a schedule for visitation with minor children.
  • Grant someone use of a vehicle.
  • Order a person to attend counseling.
  • Order a person not to enter your residence.
  • Order a person not to threaten or hurt you.

But they can't:

  • Order child support, order Alimony, or other payments
  • Divide valuable property, such as ownership of a home.
  • Set permanent child custody or use of the shared residence.
Phillip L. Weinberg

I have more than 20 years of experience defending my clients' rights. I handle all cases personally from start to finish, ensuring that each of my clients gains the full benefit of my many years of experience. At my firm, there are no associates right out of law school showing up in court knowing practically nothing about you or your case, I know my way around the courts and how they work. Throughout my career, I have learned that the best approach is not always the most aggressive one, though sometimes there is no other choice. My first goal in every case is the dismissal of my client's charge(s). In many situations, however, I have found that negotiation offers better opportunities for success.When you work with me your case will never be passed off to a paralegal or a less-experienced associate. I am a solo practitioner and always have been.
