HOW SOON CAN I GET AN ORDER OF PROTECTION?

A judge will review the Petition for Order of Protection from Domestic Abuse that you file on the same day that you are in court.  It is extremely important that you included as much information as you can, so the judge can decided on the information alone whether or not to issue a Temporary Order of Protection.  This process can take a few hours or may take all day, so be prepared to wait at the court to receive a decision.
