Family Offense Petition and Order of Protection against Client Dismissed
In a case where our client was being targeted by an ex-boyfriend, who had filed a
family offense petition alleging that she was harassing him, the
family law attorneys of
Riebling, Proto & Sachs, LLP successfully argued to have the petition dismissed and the temporary order
of protection vacated. In doing so, the client was able to return to her
normal life without restriction.
Unfortunately, in many family offense cases, the mere filing of a petition
will result in a temporary order of protection being issued. That temporary
order of protection will remain in place until the Family Court Judge
has had an opportunity to hear the facts of the case. While the temporary
order of protection exists, a parent's ability to communicate with
their children, return to their home and attend various important events
may be severely restricted or even prevented. Failing to abide by the
terms of an order of protection may result in additional petitions being
filed in Family Court and even criminal prosecution for Criminal Contempt
