Protecting the Victims of Domestic Violence

If you or your children are the victims of domestic violence – which includes physical, emotional, or psychological abuse – you may qualify for an order of protection to prevent the abuser from having contact with you or your children.

At Arnel Law Firm, we have seen the worst of what domestic violence can do to a relationship and to a person's self-esteem. The psychological damage to children can be significant, even from watching one parent abuse the other. We aggressively advocate for victims of domestic violence.

At the same time, we have seen many people become the victims of false domestic violence accusations used to gain the upper hand in a divorce, child custody battle, or other dispute. We are prepared to defend you if you have been falsely accused.

There is no time to waste in these serious circumstances. Call 718-550-3024.

What Does an Order of Protection Do?

An order of protection is issued to stop abuse, harassment, stalking, and other types of violence. It prevents a person from coming near you, your home, and your workplace. They can also be issued when someone has violated an existing court order.

How to File for an Order of Protection

To file for an order of protection, you must meet any of four criteria:

  • You are related to the accused by blood or marriage
  • You were previously married to the accused
  • You have a child with the accused
  • You are or were in an intimate relationship with the accused

If you have been wrongly accused of domestic abuse, we encourage you to contact our Brooklyn order of protection attorneys as soon as possible. It is not an overstatement to say that your future could be at stake. Negative findings in court can hurt your chances for a job or advancement when a background check is performed.
