Understanding Orders of Protection

An order of protection, also called a restraining order, is a document issued by a family or criminal court that helps protect individual’s from harassment or abuse from a spouse, former spouse, or other family member. In an order of protection, a judge can set limits on your family member’s behavior which can help protect you and your family from harm.

Within an order of protection, a judge can order an abusive individual to:

  • Stop abusing you and your children
  • Move out of your home
  • Stay away from your family, home, and workplace
  • Have no contact with you through any type of correspondence
  • Pay for abuse-related expenses, such as medical care and property damage
  • Obey court orders for child custody, child support, or maintenance orders
  • Attend a program for abusers
  • Not have a gun

There are many things to consider when determining if an order of protection is the right thing for you. Our knowledgeable Suffolk County order of protection lawyers can help you think through your options and make an informed decision.

If you are in need of protection, do not wait another moment to seek resolution. Call the Law Office of Robert H. Montefusco at (631) 801-0007 or contact us online to get the protection you need.

Testimonials
  • You don't need a guppy, you need a Barracuda!

    “I was recommended to The Montefusco law firm by a friend who is a lawyer. He told me "You don't need a guppy, you need a Barracuda"! From the first free consultation (many years ago) to the present day, the entire staff was courteous, punctual, professional, and tolerant. I say that because I can be a tough customer to deal with, and I was never treated that way. I was always given the respect, time, and the opportunity to be heard. Hope and Monica were great on the phones, and taking down my concerns, and relaying them to Robert, Meaghan, or Maureen. I had a particularly rough time with my EX, and I was fighting for the rights of my son, and him now living with me. Robert had my back through the whole process. I am 100% satisfied with the outcome, and the entire team should take a bow! Robert always knew just what to say, and how to calm me down in moments of disbelief in the ongoing battles, and I feel I can include him in my 'inner circle' of friends. Meaghan did a great job of re-writing all of my oppositions, and even took my calls when she was at her home. And last but not least is Maureen. Maureen is a paragon. She could answer every question I had, and always gave me the respect I deserved. She and I got to know each other pretty well on the phones, and through emails. Often times I called to talk to Robert, and Maureen picked up, and helped me through my concerns. Thank you Robert, Meaghan, Maureen, Hope, and Monica! You made a really bumpy road seem navigable, and throughout the process, there was always a shining light at the end of the tunnel!”

  • THE LAW OFFICE OF ROBERT MONTEFUSCO IS ONE IN A MILLION

    “Robert and his staff have always went above and beyond for me throughout every step of my brutal divorce and custody process. My case is currently still open and we are in 3 court rooms. Robert is exceptionally educated, experienced, and understanding when it comes to matrimonial law. The past 2 years of my life have been the most darkest and at times unbearable because of the mistake I made in choosing the wrong partner. At times, I would call their office literally 3-4 times A DAY panicking, stressing, obsessing, and mostly crying. I never felt I was annoying them or a nuisance; they were ALWAYS there for me. Robert is not only my attorney, many times he acts as my therapist and calms me down and subsides my fears. Maureen was there beside me to sign the papers to file for the hardest decisions of my life and she always helped in making the process as smooth and seamless as possible. Hope is an amazing asset as well. She is always there to answer any questions I have and always was an extra pair of ears for me to vent to. In choosing this law firm you not only get an amazingly experienced attorney, you get a FIGHTER. Robert defends and protects me aggressively and passionately every single court appearance. For the first time in my life I have absolutely NO FEAR walking into the courtrooms ever anymore because HE is by my side. I am confident that I not only have an amazing group of people working on my case every day, but I have found friends for the rest of my life. The words Thank You will never be enough for what each of them have done for me during this difficult time in my life. You guys ROCK!”

  • Robert is definitely the one you want representing you through a difficult time that is going to affect the rest of your life

    “Robert was my attorney representing me through my divorce and I couldn’t have asked for any better. The attorney you choose greatly affects the outcome of your divorce and mine would have been horrible if it wasn’t for him. I strongly and highly recommend him. He guided me through with his expert negotiating, leadership, advice and representation. He was realistic of what the outcome was going to be and he was right. His office staff is wonderful and you always get timely responses. Robert is definitely the one you want representing you through a difficult time that is going to affect the rest of your life”
