How can I get my property back?
In order to have property released to you that is being held by a local police agency or the District Attorney's office, you will need a signed letter from our office to present to the agency. Please send our office a letter listing the property you would like released, and be sure to include the name of the defendant. Please also provide your contact information, so if we have any questions we can get in touch with you. Once received, a letter will be sent to the agency, with a copy to you and/or your attorney, instructing the agency that the property may be released. If a case is still on-going, the property may not be able to be released, as it may be considered evidence in the pending case. Every effort will be made to return evidence to the owner in a timely manner.
How do I modify or vacate an Order of Protection?
An Order of Protection is issued by the court. Only the court may modify or vacate an Order of Protection.

The court will decide whether or not the Order of Protection can be modified or vacated. Modification or dismissal of Orders of Protection are at the discretion of the court, so please be aware the court may not decide in your favor.
