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

    Jim

  • Attorney Montefusco is absolutely the best – – Period.

    “It’s truly a privilege to be represented by an attorney I feel is the best and I never worry when Robert’s by my side.”

    Francis

  • It all came true and I was very happy and relieved when it was all over.

    John

  • 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!”

  • His office personnel was unbelievable.

    “He explains everything in detail.”

    Edward

  • I had an exceptional experience during a very difficult time.

    “All details taken care of, no loose ends.”

    Guy

  • Robert is not a stranger to arguing a motion. An added benefit that helped with my selection of Robert was his prior background as a Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney.

    “Although I am not an attorney, I deal with a lot of contact, intellectual capital and real-estate attorneys regularly and I’m a pretty good judge of character. Robert’s representation of me was outstanding!”

    Robert D.

  • Mr. Montefusco has the right amount of pitbull in him and uses it when the opportunity requires.

    “Mr. Montefusco and his assistant were and continue to be excellent.”

    David

  • Thank you for helping to give me peace of mind.

    “When you told me not to worry you would fight for me I REALLY felt that in your words.”

    Dina D.
