If you are being subjected to violence, mental, physical or emotional abuse, harassment or threats of violence and abuse from a current or former spouse, family member or partner, or a person who is also the parent of your child, a Court Order of Protection can provide help for you.
Upon filing a sworn petition with the Family Court providing essential information that you have been subjected to violence, mental, physical or emotional abuse, harassment or threats thereof you can get your petition heard by a Family Court judge the same day or the next day.
