Victim orders are the protective orders also known restraining orders, under some jurisdictions. Victims are thus shielded from domestic violence and criminal threats. The courts issue such orders to restrain the accused person from threatening or harming the petitioner further (Reid, 2015). Such involves limiting the petitioner’s contacts, life threats, stalking, attacks, and harassment on the victim. In New York, courts issue different protection orders, which are discussed in the current paper.
