An Order of Protection can provide a number of legal remedies from the Court. These include the Court ordering a change in child custody, ordering maintenance or child support to be paid, and ordering house payments to be made.
However, if another Court Order addressing these same matters is issued after the Protective Order is put in place, then the later Order will take precedence. For example, a divorce that becomes final after a Protective Order is in place will often times trump the Protective Order.
Alerting the Court of a Change in Circumstances
If there is a new Court Order or a major change in circumstances, someone with an Order of Protection needs to alert the Court to the change, so the Court can modify the Order.
