New York Domestic Violence and Domestic Assault Laws
New York police have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to domestic assault cases, and after most domestic violence accusations they will make an arrest. Even accusations with no merit can, and will, lead to people spending time in jail and being issued some form of a restraining order.
The Blanch Law Firm has experience with the following domestic assault and domestic violence claims:
- Physical abuse, battery, and any other types of domestic assault
- Intimidation and verbal abuse
- Threats of violence
- Stalking or harassment
- Violations of restraining orders or orders of protection
- Assault, stalking, phone, and email harassment
Domestic violence laws govern highly-emotional human interaction and are designed to create as much distance between parties as possible. For example, restraining orders are handed down in many domestic assault cases and can last for 6 months, 1 year or more. They prevent people from entering homes, visiting children and/or having significant interaction with opposing parties.
Domestic Assault Challenges
Part of the challenge with domestic assault, or domestic violence, cases is that in addition to the complex legal issues involved, each case is highly emotional. This is why it is crucial that if you are facing domestic assault, domestic abuse or domestic violence charges, you promptly obtain the best criminal defense attorney.
If you are charged with domestic assault and are facing a jury trial, the prosecution will no doubt paint you or any other alleged criminal as an abusive person with a short temper. Only a skilled domestic assault lawyer can provide the kind of sophisticated defense that will sway a jury. Prosecutors not only have the law on their side, but emotion as well, so having a competent domestic violence attorney defending you in court is important.
Congress and the New York legislature pass domestic abuse laws all the time, often because they look good on paper. However, if you have been accused of domestic assault, all of the domestic abuse laws that make politicians look good have a different affect on your freedom. Misunderstandings, false accusations and even drunken arguments have cost people years of their lives. The highly qualified domestic violence attorney team at The Blanch Law Firm is not only up to date on the domestic violence laws, but on pending legislation that could also affect your future.
