Helping Victims of Domestic Violence & Abuse

It is common for a victim of domestic violence to be uncertain about how to get help. Additionally, due to the shame and fear of retaliation, a victim might be too embarrassed or afraid to even ask for help.

For access to the domestic violence hotline in your county, contact the New York State Domestic and Sexual Violence Hotline at 1-800-942-6906.

At Samuelson Hause PLLC, we urge you to contact an 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 attorneys can determine which one would best serve your needs and situation. The 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 contacting the victim and his/her children - whether in person, over the phone, through email, via text message, etc.
