DOMESTIC VIOLENCE (ORDERS OF PROTECTION) ATTORNEYS IN SUFFOLK COUNTY
DEALING WITH DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND NEED TO REQUEST AN ORDER OF PROTECTION?
Domestic violence is a real and serious threat for those who are attempting to leave an abusive relationship. However, domestic abuse claims and restraining orders are often misused throughout divorce or custody proceedings in order for one spouse to obtain an unfair advantage over the other spouse.
Domestic violence is a form of abuse that is committed against an individual by his or her family member, spouse, person he or she is in an intimate relationship with, or by the parent of a shared child. New York family court matters involving domestic violence are often complex. It is important to ensure your safety and protect all of your legal rights throughout every step of the proceeding. You can apply for an Order of Protection in order to prevent your abuser from coming into contact with you or harming you in any way.
