Protecting you from Domestic Abuse
If you are in an abusive relationship or under the threat of domestic violence, you can file for a Restraining Order or Order of Protection to keep the abuser away from you. These orders are enforceable by the local police, keeping you and your family safe from the dangerous person. An Order of Protection can be obtained on the same day from your local courthouse as well. However, for a permanent Order of Protection, you will have to go through a proper legal process. Our attorneys can help you understand the process and secure protection from domestic violence now and in the future.
