My question involves restraining orders in the State of: NY (Manhattan)
I need to get a harassment restraining order against a neighbor.
I have a complaint report from our local police station, and the policemen have told me to go to court for a protection order.
I simply need to know which court handles such cases civil, criminal, family or etc.
I have been on the phone for 3 days trying to find out where I should go to ask for protection court information operators, court clerks, district attorney office, 311 info service all of them - keep transferring my calls to each other or re-addressing me to another court/ofice etc., and I still have no answer. Local Police station is also helpless.
More details about the case: - no one was arrested; police even did not contact the neighbors who tried to limit my access to common areas in the building plus I got aggressive verbal abuse from them. The current status of my case in the police system - CLOSED, "the event" happened a few days ago.
Would you please answer my question?
I need to know the court name.
Additional information such as address, room, phone # - is highly appreciated.
