Can provisions (e.g. refrain from communication) be added to a local Criminal Court Order of Protection by an NY Family Court?

Q: I have an order of protection against my ex-wife from a local criminal court barring her from committing additional offenses against me and not possess firearms, and I was wondering if a provision for no communication or contact could be added by the family court to that order of protection?

A: David's Answer: Yes, because the Family Court can issue it's own order independently of what the criminal court issued. That said, if the case is assigned to an IDV Judge, then the same Judge would be issuing both orders. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Domestic Violence attorney for a full assessment.
