Orders of Protection on Long Island

Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges

Spouses, children, and family members can often overreact to an argument or fight. One of the things that can result from such an overreaction is an order of protection. Individuals who have suffered from domestic violence, including threats of bodily harm, can request an order of protection. These court orders prevent the allegedly abusive individual from living in the same residence as the protected individual or from coming near them or contact them in any way. These orders can be unjustly requested, however, and can cause more harm than good if the applicant is in the wrong.

If an order of protection has been requested or taken out against you, then you will likely have to move and will be unable to see any loved ones named in the order. You could be wrongfully prevented from spending time with your children simply because an angry, bitter, or frightened member of your household overreacted to your behavior. The Law Offices of Scott Gross, P.C. can build a strong case on your behalf and can fight to protect your rights after you have been accused of violence or abuse. We can help you keep your household together and can protect your reputation in the process.
