I’m Divorcing And My Ex Has Trumped Up Domestic Violence Charges For Leverage. How Do I Defend Myself?

Trumped up or not, domestic violence charges are no joke in New York. You are subject to arrest, and a restraining order can create costly hassles that keep you from your home and your belongings.

And of course, if you violate a restraining order, you risk another arrest and charges of criminal contempt.

The upside is that the courts are very familiar with the situation you describe, so your best bet is to retain experienced legal counsel who can help you navigate an extremely uncertain terrain in both your divorce and with family or criminal court charges.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino have the experience you can trust.
