Q: The situation is I have a criminal order protection against my sister and she has a family order protection of protection against me. The incident was she become violent and broke my phone. Afterwards she was arrested. Upon that, she has been making false claims and police reports and we are set for court this month. She even went as far as taking me to court upon these false claims. For all the times the police were called, not once was I arrested or charged with anything. The entire problem is while she is violating the order of protection, nothing has been done about it and the cops refuse to do anything. The main issue from all this comes from her refusal to remove her belongings from my room in which she placed a lock on it.
A: You can use the "Find a Lawyer" tab on the Avvo website & shop around - some lawyers offer sliding scales and/or take credit cards. You can otherwise ask the Court to assign you a free lawyer if you financially qualify. Call a Bronx Domestic Violence attorney for more info.
