Yes, if you have a matter pending in Family Court and a related matter pending in Criminal Court, it’s important that you get good advice about how to proceed.
Often, the best approach is to move to delay a Family Court matter while working to negotiate a plea or reduction in charges in Criminal Court.
This can become especially complex if you’re called to a hearing on issues related to a Temporary Order of Protection.
You really need to have a strong advocate at your side so you don’t inadvertently provide testimony that can be used against you in your criminal matter.
