Helping Victims of Domestic Violence & Abuse
Many victims of domestic violence are unsure of who to trust and where
to go for help. Furthermore, large majorities of people who are abused
or mistreated by a family member never speak up or ask for help out of
fear of retaliation, shame, or embarrassment. At Samuelson Hause &
Samuelson, LLP, we urge you to contact an understanding, respectful attorney
at our office who can help you seek the protection you need and deserve.
Types of Protective Orders in New York
There are two main types of protective orders in New York. Our Long Island
protection order attorneys can determine which one would best serve your
needs and situation. These two types of protective orders are:
Stay-Away Order: This type of protective order prohibits the accused from coming within
a certain distance of the victim, as well as from coming within a close
distance of the victim's home, work, or any other place he or she
frequents. A victim can usually obtain a stay-away order that protects
his or her children, as well.
Refrain-From Order: This type of protective order prohibits the accused from engaging in certain
behavior, such as making threats against the victim, assaulting the victim,
harassing the victim, or inflicting violence against the victim. Refrain-from
orders can also forbid the accused from making contact with the victim
and his or her children, whether in person, over the phone, through email,
via text message, etc.
