How Do I Get An Order Of Protection Changed From A Stay Away To A Refrain From (Or Dropped)? I Put The Order In Place?

  • By: David Bliven, Esq.
  • Published: January 31, 2019

Q: My husband has issues with rage. I had an order of protection put in place as a stay away because I didn’t know how we would react (nor did I fully understand that this could go on for months/years). I want to talk to him and try and move forward in life. I have 2 kids who are also on the order. I do not believe my kids are in danger any more. I no longer feel in danger. How do I get this changed/dropped if he can prove he is taking the right actions? I don’t want to risk my kids being taken away.

A: If your case is in Family Court, then you can just file an order to show cause to amend the order. If it’s in criminal court, you’d need to speak with the ADA. Schedule a consult with a Westchester Domestic Violence attorney for more info.
