When Do I Need an Attorney for Domestic Violence?
When it comes to family law, domestic violence comes in a variety of forms.
The most common forms of domestic violence are spousal abuse and child

of any blood relative, relative by marriage, member of your household,
or even a close friend or person with whom you have a close relationship.
Domestic violence can include:
- Physical abuse / violence
- Threats of violence
- Attempts at any of the above
If you have suffered any form of violence, abuse, or threats of violence
by someone who is close to you, act quickly. You need a Westchester County

to help you get a restraining order.
What Is a Family Court Order of Protection?
In family law cases, an order of protection is a legal document ordering
your abuser to stay away from you and, in certain cases, your children,
under penalty of law. In most cases, the person will be required to:
- Stay away from you
- Move out of your home
- Obey any child custody orders
- Pay child support
- Not own or possess a firearm
These cases are sensitive and require a family law attorney that is up
to the task. At Friedman & Friedman, Attorneys at Law, our partners
are strong advocates for both mothers’ and
fathers’ rights and will go the extra mile to protect you and your children.
