Manhattan Domestic Violence Lawyer - Abuse Attorneys

Experienced Manhattan Domestic Violence Lawyer

Domestic violence is different than other violent crimes in that it is abuse that takes place between family members, loved ones, or members of the same household. If you have been charged with this crime in NYC, reach out to the domestic abuse lawyers at Lebedin Kofman LLP for effective and individualized representation. With years of experience under our belts, our New York criminal lawyers have successfully helped thousands of clients resolve their problems. We can assist you, too.

Types Of Domestic Violence Offenses

Some acts that may be considered domestic violence include the following, and more:

  • Domestic assault
  • Stalking
  • Harassment
  • Threats of violence
  • Verbal or physical abuse
  • Imprisonment or physical restraint

The state of New York takes allegations of domestic violence very seriously, and a conviction for domestic violence can have far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. In many cases, filing domestic violence charges automatically results in a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the defendant. The TRO, among other things, may prevent the defendant from entering the shared premises, as well as from being near the accuser and other family members.

Call Lebedin Kofman LLP today at (646) 663-4430 or contact us online to learn more about how our NYC domestic violence lawyers can help you.

What Are The Penalties For Domestic Violence?

Being convicted of domestic violence may result in exorbitant fines, probation, lost firearm privileges, and even years in jail or prison. In the state of New York, domestic violence can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony. If you are facing a misdemeanor domestic violence charge then you could be looking at between 15 days and one year in jail and fines up to $1,000. However, if you are facing a felony domestic violence charge the penalties become much more severe and you be looking at anywhere from 4-25 years in jail and fines that are upwards of $30,000.

Temporary Orders of Protection

The court can issue a temporary protection order if a person is accused of a crime against a spouse, former spouse, child or parent, or member of the same household. The victim can also petition for a temporary order of protection in a family court proceeding. Even if the defendant has not been charged, they can still file a petition to obtain an order of protection. The judge will issue a temporary order after reviewing the petition and asking questions to the victim. An ex parte order of temporary protection can be issued, meaning that the defendant is not notified by the court before the order is issued.

Provisions that may be included in a temporary order of protection include:

  • requiring the defendant to be allowed to enter the house, school, workplace, or school of any family member, witness, or household member.
  • setting a schedule of child visits if the defendant was a parent
  • prohibiting the defendant from committing criminal offenses towards a member of the family, a household member, or a child
  • prohibiting the defendant from creating an unreasonable risk for the safety, health, or welfare of a child, family member, or household member.
  • requiring the defendant to allow a designated person to enter the residence at a specified time in order to take personal belongings.
  • prohibiting the defendant from causing harm to any pet or child in the household.
