Orders of Protection

Orders of Protection and Restraining Orders

A Family-Law Firm Serving Long Island since 1969

Laws in New York State that govern domestic violence provide protection for abuse victims. Such disputes provide serious legal challenges for parties on both sides of the accusation. Victims can usually obtain fast protection, but often need legal help to secure long-term protection from abusive spouses and partners.

Alleged abusers sometimes face false, opportunistic charges, and serious legal consequences even before a conviction, including:

– Legal disadvantages in divorce proceedings
– Loss of the right to own weapons, which can be especially problematic for hunters, law enforcement officials and individuals in the security industry
– Loss of the right to return home and spend time with children
