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 abuse, but the truth is that domestic violence can occur at the hands 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
  • Assault
  • Menacing
  • Stalking
  • 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 domestic violence lawyer on your side to make sure you are protected and 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 PLLC, 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.
