Familial Offenses

The New York State Family Court Act includes a section dedicated to family offense proceedings, which are designed to address potentially or presently dangerous matters between those related by blood, marriage, divorce, children in common, or intimate partners. Upon petitioning in response to alleged offense, the applicable court may issue an order of protection, with violations thereof potentially resulting in arrest and a charge of criminal attempt.

As one can expect, these procedures are extremely difficult to employ without in tow at every stage. Yes, obtaining services for these issues can be expensive; however; one's well-being should be worth the expense.
