Harassment Prevention Orders - What are they and How do I Qualify?

Harassment prevention orders are found under chapter 258E of the Massachusetts General Laws. This chapter was enacted as a response to inadequate protections for those being abused by acquaintances or strangers, as such protections are not available via Abuse Prevention Orders (aka Restraining Orders) found in chapter 209A.

When to Involve the Department of Children and Families

Child abuse or neglect are serious matters that need to be addressed immediately. Unfortunately, many parents fail to take appropriate steps towards ensuring that suspicions of child abuse or neglect are addressed, either due to fear that doing so will cause additional harm to the child or that it will place their own parenting into question.
