Orders of Protection in Queens
Attorneys Helping with Restraining Orders
An order of protection, or restraining order, will prevent contact between the accused and his or her victim. At Levi Divorce & Family Law Attorneys, principal attorney Natalie Markfeld and our Queens-based family law attorneys help clients obtain restraining orders and defend against false accusations.
Serving Queens, the Bronx & Manhattan
If you are being abused, threatened, stalked, or harassed by a family member, your child's other parent, or by anyone else with whom you have a close relationship, there is help. An order of protection, or restraining order, will force the offender to stop the negative behavior or face legal consequences.
Led by principal attorney Natalie Markfeld, our attorneys at Levi Divorce & Family Law Attorneys have helped clients throughout New York protect themselves and their children from hurtful behavior. Clients turn to us when they have been hurt or fear future harmful action against themselves and their children. Our lawyers act fast to stop the offending behavior by filing for a temporary order of protection in family court. Once the order has been granted, the abuser must cease all contact with his or her victim or face arrest.
A hearing will be scheduled to make the order of protection permanent. Because this order will be permanent, our attorneys take the time to make sure our clients understand the long-term effects a permanent order of protection will have on their lives. If our clients decide to pursue a permanent order, we tenaciously represent their interests at the hearing to stop abusing behavior permanently.
Defending against False Protective Order Claims
If you have been accused of abuse or threatening abuse against your current of former spouse, the other parent of your child, or any other family member or person with whom you have an intimate relationship, you are facing a serious accusation.
Having a protective order not only interferes with your ability to interact with your accuser, it may also interfere with your employment and prevent you from exercising your custody rights and visitation time with your children. We defend clients during protective order hearings to ensure their parental rights are preserved.
