Stop Abusive Behavior: Protection Order Attorneys Serving The Bronx, Queens, And Manhattan
If you are being abused, threatened, stalked or harassed by a family member, your child’s other parent or by anyone else with whom you have a close relationship, there is help. An order of protection, or restraining order, will force the offender to stop the negative behavior or face legal consequences.
At Daniella Levi & Associates, P.C., our attorneys have helped clients throughout New York protect themselves and their children from hurtful behavior. Clients turn to us when they have been hurt, or fear future harmful actions against themselves and their children. Our lawyers act fast to stop the offending behavior by filing for a temporary order of protection in family court. Once the order has been granted, the abuser must cease all contact with his or her victim or face arrest.
A hearing will be scheduled to make the order of protection permanent. Because this order will be permanent, our attorneys take the time to make sure our clients understand the long-term effects – including the impacts to any minor children involved – a permanent order of protection will have on their lives. If our clients decide to pursue a permanent order, we tenaciously represent their interests at the hearing to stop abusive behavior permanently.
Defending Against False Protective Order Claims
If you have been accused of abuse – or threatening abuse – against your current of former spouse, the other parent of your child, or any other family member or person with whom you have an intimate relationship, you are facing a serious accusation.
Having a protective order not only interferes with your ability to interact with your accuser, it may also interfere with your employment and prevent you from exercising your custody rights and visitation time with your children. At Daniella Levi & Associates, P.C., we defend clients during protective order hearings to ensure their parental rights are preserved.
