Q: What is the difference between a limited order of protection and an acd?

Q: Waiting for the Judge to give a date to return to family court in February instead of March. This is so the Judge can either modify the order of protection against my husband or accept the ACD. I'm not sure but so far everyone agreed for my husband to come back home. Now it's up to the Judge. We are scheduled for trial march 10, but I don't think it will go to trial. Not sure hard to say.

A: An "ACD" stands for "Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal." Technically, Family Court doesn't have ACD's in Family Offense cases, but some Judges approve the rough equivalent - which is to adjourn the case for 6-12 months & if nothing else happens, the entire case gets dismissed. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Domestic Violence Attorney for a full assessment.
