Once the police and DA are involved in a potential domestic violence situation, there are automatic measures they take to protect victims.
While these laws and policies are well intentioned, the truth is that New York State law allows district attorneys to ruin families.
Judges will almost never simply drop an order of protection because the complaining witness asks.
The best way, and the quickest way, to get your family back together is by asking the court to modify the order.
For instance, if you have a Stay Away order, we’ll petition to have it reduced to a less stringent set of orders that can allow you to move back into your home.
These are hard situations to get through, but the lawyers at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help.
