An Order for Protection is a kind of restraining order that is intended to stop family violence, which includes physical harm or threat of immediate physical harm. An Order for Protection is not a criminal procedure, but rather is a civil matter handled by the family court.

If you are faced with the threat of violence from a family member or partner, or someone has accused you of violent or threatening behavior, you may need to file for, or respond to, an order for protection. This episode of the podcast discusses the basics of requesting an order for protection, as well as what you should do if someone has requested an order for protection against you.

03 Mediation Process

Coming to a settlement is the best and by far most common way to complete a divorce. It greatly increases parties’ satisfaction with the final terms of divorce because the parties choose the reasonable terms themselves, and coming to an early settlement is the best way to save money and time on a divorce.

Most divorcing couples are able to reach a settlement, but it can be difficult to come to an agreement on all the terms of their divorce without the help of an objective facilitator. A mediator serves as an experienced, neutral guide for couples who need help identifying issues and crafting resolutions for themselves and their families. This episode of the podcast Susan answers frequently asked questions about this type of alternative dispute resolution.
