In more cases than people realize, domestic violence either causes divorce or is an immediate effect of divorce. Many people, in fact, experience the highest risk of domestic violence when they decide to leave their relationship. When you contact the Law Office of Patricia M.

What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence refers to several types of behaviors that a person inflicts upon their spouse, the parent of their child, another family member, or their roommate.

These behaviors can include:

  • Stalking
  • Threatening
  • Harassing
  • Destroying property or possessions
  • Committing physical harm
  • Committing sexual assault

One of the best ways to stop these behaviors is having an attorneys file a temporary order of protection. This will take effect the day you file it, and it will last until the next court date, upon which you may acquire a final order of protection.

An order of protection can cover your children, as well. If the parent of your children acquires visitation rights, you can request supervised visitation, and we recommend arranging visits in public spaces.

Give us a call at (646) 355-1560 or contact us online if you have experienced or been accused of domestic violence. We provide services in both English and Spanish.
