Many people believe that abuse only comes in the physical form. This is not the case. There is also mental and emotional abuse. If you feel that you or your children are targets of abuse, you should consider filing for an order of protection. In some cases, the order should be filed before the divorce.
In the state of New York, there are specific laws regarding filing orders of protection. If the facts and circumstances warrant the order, the judge will order intervention. If you have photos, medical paperwork, phone calls, texts or even witnesses to the abuse, the order will granted in most cases. Although these aren’t necessarily needed, it will help bolster the claim against the abusive spouse.
Seeking Legal Help
