As an experienced Saratoga Family Law Attorney, I am often asked what to do if you are afraid to see the respondent of an order of protection in court.
- If you’re afraid to see the respondent in court, reach out to a court officer outside the courtroom upon arriving at the courthouse and ask to be escorted to a room away from the respondent.
- They will also escort you into the courtroom when you are called for your appearance and, once your case is concluded, they will escort you from the courtroom.
- Bring a friend or a family member – or even an advocate – to court with you so that you don’t feel alone or scared.
