Rochester Domestic Violence Attorney Discusses Violating an Order of Protection

I am frequently asked as a Rochester Domestic Violence Attorney, what can happen if an order of protection is violated.

  • If an order of protection has been violated, it can be addressed in criminal court as a criminal matter, or in the family court with a violation petition.
  • If filed through a family court, there will not be any criminal penalties.
