If you give your relative authority to do it they can but your signature needs to be on it. At some point you might have to travel to NY for a hearing unless a judge grants a telephonic one.

Does that make sense?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
when you said a signature you mean typing a letter stating that i give the person the authority to file the injunction and restraining order
Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 1 year ago.
No you would sign the court motion that is filed. You can sign it and send it back to your relative via fax or mail.

Hope that is clearer.
