Types of Restraining Orders in Massachusetts

Attorneys James G. DeGiacomo and Sergey Mikhlin assist both plaintiffs and defendants in restraining orders (both Abuse Prevention Orders and Harassment Prevention Orders).

  • Abuse Prevention Orders are governed by MGL c. 209A, and are granted when the plaintiff and the defendant are considered Family/Household Members.
  • Harassment Prevention Orders are governed by MGL c. 258E, and are granted when the plaintiff can show that the defendant has engaged in a pattern of three or more instances of harassment.

As experienced litigation attorneys and former prosecutors, Attorneys James G. DeGiacomo and Sergey Mikhlin understand the issues that judges consider when granting or denying restraining orders. Prior to going to court, it is important to understand what must be shown for a judge to grant these orders. In addition, you must know the ramifications of these orders, which can include temporary custody of children, the removal from a home, and even limited access to a town or city.
