Manhattan domestic violence attorney Russ Kofman releases a new article (https://www.lebedinkofman.com/manhattan-domestic-violence-lawyer/) discussing the types of domestic violence offenses in New York. The lawyer mentions that the thing that sets domestic violence apart from other violent crimes is that it is abuse that happens between family members. A charge of domestic violence can make a significant impact on someone’s life.
“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,” says the Manhattan domestic violence attorney.
According to the lawyer, domestic violence can include stalking, harassment, and threats of violence. Verbal abuse, physical abuse, imprisonment, or restraint are all examples. A domestic violence conviction can lead to huge fines and loss of firearm privileges. It could even result in years of imprisonment or prison.
Attorney Russ Kofman also states that a court may issue a temporary order of protection if the accused is charged with a crime against the spouse, parent, or child of the household. A victim may also file a petition to obtain a temporary protection order in family court proceedings. The victim can still file a petition even if the defendant is not charged.
In the article, attorney Kofman adds, “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. Furthermore, a conviction will likely result in an order of protection being filed against you, thereby preventing you from visiting your children or loved ones. This is why it is vitally important to retain skilled advocacy as soon as you are charged.”
Lastly, attorney Kofman emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when facing charges of domestic violence. An experienced lawyer may be able to help the defendant understand their rights and protect their freedom.
