Domestic abuse is defined as abuse at the hands of any member of your family, including your spouse, blood relatives or a significant other.
You can ask for an Order of Protection that includes your children. An Order of Protection prevents the abuser from contacting you or other protected persons at home, work or school. An Order of Protection is effective for one year beginning on the date the defendant is served. You can also request Legal Decision Making and ask for an emergency hearing if you have a divorce, annulment or legal separation filed with the court.
