Order of Protection Attorneys in Binghamton
Advocating for Your Rights & Interests
There are times during divorce actions, child custody, and visitation proceedings, and during everyday life when one parent/spouse will engage in an act of domestic violence, assault, harassment, or another crime against the other parent/spouse. The filing and results of family offense petitions are significant and have long-lasting consequences on your future.
For instance, there are times when a family court will issue an order of protection in favor of the complaining parent/spouse against the offending parent/spouse. The result can be that that offending parent/spouse can no longer be in or near the home, have no contact or communication with the complaining parent/spouse, and/or no contact or communication with their children. To avoid these terrible consequences, get in contact with our Order of Protection lawyers in Binghamton. Trust Jackson Bergman, LLP to fight for your rights even in the most challenging times.

Temporary Orders of Protection
If someone has been arrested on the claim that they have committed a crime of domestic violence, whether for an alleged case of harassment, assault, or stalking, that defendant usually gets issued a protection or restraining order which is just temporary.
The two primary types of temporary orders include:
- Type I: This type of edict is also known as a complete “Stay Away” policy. In this kind of situation, you are not allowed to have even the smallest bit of contact with the plaintiff, whether through the means of email, phone, or in person. If you live in the same residence as your family, you will most likely be forced to leave, and if you try to contact your children, you could face even more severe consequences.
- Type II: The other term for this order is “Limited,’ more commonly known as “Do Not Harass.” With this order, you are able to go back to your home, but only under a strong warning to not continue in negative behavior.
Permanent Orders of Protection
At a later point in time, it is up to the court to decide if the restrictions will be continued under a completely permanent restraining order. Such orders will have devastating consequences on your life and your relationships, which is why you need our determined lawyers to work on convincing the judge and jury that such a protective order is not necessary or based on false claims to begin with. Alternatively, we can change harsh Type I temporary orders to Type II orders, to make you have better access to reconcile with your family.
