I have represented many victims of domestic violence and abuse. I have also represented many clients who were unfairly and falsely accused of such acts. Domestic violence and abuse are serious issues. You and your children have the right to be safe and free from harm, both physical and emotional. You should not be afraid.
The court will grant an order of protection based upon a proper demonstration of proof. If the order of protection is violated, the penalties include incarceration.
In the alternative, an order of protection which is improperly filed, and intended to harass the respondent, or to gain an unfair advantage in a pending matter must be defended strongly. I have the experience that you require at this difficult time.
