New York Restraining Order Attorneys
Domestic Violence Lawyers in Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan, New York
One of the first steps that an experienced New York restraining order attorney can take on a victim’s behalf against his or her abuser is to request that a restraining order or an order of protection be issued. This can be done the same day that the abuse takes place, if an attorney or judge believes the victim is in immediate danger of further abuse. A restraining order that is obtained the same day is called an emergency restraining order. It may be obtained whether or not the abuser has been incarcerated for his actions. Whether an emergency restraining order is issued or not, a lawyer can begin the process of obtaining a permanent restraining order in court that can then remain active for up to 5 years.
New York Restraining Orders & Domestic Violence
A restraining order can protect you, your children and any other family members from further abusive behavior. It is a court order that will specify specific orders that the abuser must obey, including staying away from your residence, school, place of employment and/or daycare facility. It will also order the abuser to not contact you by phone, fax, email, text, mail or by a third party - in any way whatsoever. This will hopefully deter any further criminal acts of violence and give you at least some peace of mind. If the abuser violates this court order in any way, he or she may be sentenced to jail among other penalties.
