Manhattan Domestic Violence Lawyer Russ Kofman Discusses the Types of Domestic Violence Offenses In New York

Manhattan domestic violence lawyer Russ Kofman releases a new article ( discussing the types of domestic violence offenses in New York. The lawyer mentions that the thing that sets domestic violence apart from other violent crimes is that it is abuse that happens between family members. A charge of domestic violence can make a significant impact on someone’s life.

“The state of New York takes allegations of domestic violence very seriously, and a conviction for domestic violence can have far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. In many cases, filing domestic violence charges automatically results in a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the defendant. The TRO, among other things, may prevent the defendant from entering the shared premises, as well as from being near the accuser and other family members,” says the Manhattan domestic violence lawyer.

The lawyer explains that the acts that can be considered domestic violence include doestic violence, stalking, harassment, threats of violence, verbal abuse, physical abuse, imprisonment or physical restraint, and many others. Being convicted for domestic violence can ressult in huge fines, lost firearm privileges, and even years in jail or prison.

Attorney Russ Kofman adds that the court can also issue a temporary protection order if the person is accused of a crime against a spouse, child or parent, or member of the same household. The victim can also petition for a temporary order of protection in a family courty proceeding. Even if the defendant has not been charged, the victim may still be able to file a petition.

In the article, attorney Kofman also says that “The judge will issue a temporary order after reviewing the petition and asking questions to the victim. An ex parte order of temporary protection can be issued, meaning that the defendant is not notified by the court before the order is issued. Furthermore, a conviction will likely result in an order of protection being filed against you, thereby preventing you from visiting your children or loved ones. This is why it is vitally important to retain skilled advocacy as soon as you are charged.”

Lastly, attorney Kofman emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when facing charges of domestic violence. An experienced lawyer may be able to help the defendant understand their rights and protect their freedom.
