How would I go about getting a judge ordered order of protection dropped in New York?

Asked over 1 year ago - Wellsville, NY

The order of protection is in place due to a rape charge against a man that I did not press charges on, but my mother had. There are still more court dates to come and I am not very aware of much of what is going on. I am not yet 17, but I want to know if there is anything I can do.

    Answered . I doubt a Judge is going to drop an order of protection in a rape case, especially where you are under age.

    Answered . Only the judge could vacate the order and I very highly doubt it would happen based on what you describe.

    Answered . You can try and write the judge but be careful what you say as it may hurt rather than help.
    I suggest contacting his attorney!
