  • Physical Violence
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Psychological Abuse
  • Financial Abuse
  • Sexual Abuse

If you are a victim of domestic violence, now is the time to seek legal guidance. Take action to protect yourself and your family from further abuse and speak with an attorney from Eiges & Orgel, PLLC.

What to Do if You Face Accusations of Domestic Violence

Domestic abuse and harassment is a serious threat to many families, but manipulative accusations of nonexistent violence are equally unacceptable. If you are facing an unfair accusation of domestic violence from you ex, our New York domestic violence lawyers can help you protect your rights. If your ex successfully obtains orders of protection, the court may force you to leave your home. Additionally, false accusations of abuse can keep you from seeing your children.

What is an Order of Protection?

The term “orders of protection” refers to a court-issued document that protects you and your family from abuse, harassment, and violence. If you are afraid for the safety of yourself or your children, our New York domestic violence lawyers can help you get orders of protection.

What orders of protection can do for you:

  • Keep your ex from seeing your children
  • Force the offending person to leave your home
  • Obligate the offending party to follow child custody orders
  • Keep your ex from obtaining or possessing a firearm
  • Direct the offending party to pay child support

How to Obtain an Order of Protection in New York

If you need protection from domestic violence or abuse, New York provides an Order of Protection to help keep you safe. To obtain an Order of Protection in New York, the first step is to fill out the appropriate application form and submit it to your local Family Court office. You can find these forms at any county courthouse, police station, or district attorney's office. Once submitted, a judge will review your application and determine whether there is sufficient evidence for granting an order. If you are given an order of protection, it will become effective immediately and provide you with immediate legal protection from further harm or harassment from the offender.
