Bronx Domestic Violence Archives

Q: What is the difference between a limited order of protection and an acd?

Q: Waiting for the Judge to give a date to return to family court in February instead of March. This is so the Judge can either modify the order of protection against my husband or accept the ACD. I'm not sure but so far everyone agreed for my husband to come back home. Now it's up to the Judge. We are scheduled for trial march 10, but I don't think it will go to trial. Not sure hard to say.

Q: If Im in a domestic violence situation and my ex claims squatters rights how can I get him out of the apartment?

A: You can file for an order of protection against him & ask the Family Court to exclude him from the residence. Your other avenue is to give him 30-days written notice that he must vacate the residence - and if he doesn't, commence an eviction proceeding. If you opt for a d.v. filing, then call a Bronx Domestic Violence attorney to schedule a consult. 

Q: What can I do stop stop my ex boyfriend from threatening to send my boyfriend old sexual videos of us?

A: You can retain an attorney to issue a "cease-and-desist" letter to him. It would warn him that if he does so, you would consider it "harassment" which may result in the incident being reported to police and/or the filing of an order of protection. Schedule a consult with a Bronx Domestic Violence attorney for more info. 

Q: My husband says that he wants to kill me. What can I do?

A: You should indeed strongly consider filing for an order of protection. You may also speak to "Safe Horizons" about your options. They may recommend that you temporarily enter into a domestic violence shelter until new housing can be arranged. Call a Bronx Domestic Violence attorney for more info.

Q: When getting an order of protection In family court the judge granted it and told me that I can also file this criminal court?

A: It's optional whether you appear in the criminal case, except at trial. That said, I wouldn't understand the Judge's comment that it's easier to arrest someone on a criminal court order - in my mind, an OP is an OP.

How do I go about getting an order of protection in a domestic violence situation?

Q: My mother new boyfriend of only 2-3 months locked me out my own house, would not let myself and my daughter in. I needed help form the proper authorities to get in as he tried to legally evict me while my mother let it happen. He does not pay rent been there over over 30 days, I understand he has "squatters rights". I contribute to the house bills as will. I do not feel safe living there with my daughter. My mom is on her BF side, she can take me to court if she wants that is fine. In the process would like to protect my self do to an recent incident that occurred between me and the boyfriend. I am a resident of 25 years in my home. Any advise given will be greatly appreciated.

How do I get back my apartment and possessions from an ex-partner who has placed an order of protection against me?

Q: I am the only lease holder to my apartment that I have cohabited with my ex-partner for a year after our breakup. In that time I have encouraged her to find a new place, stopping short serving her a notice of termination out of kindness and genuine fear for her homelessness. I have accepted numerous, highly controlling demands and concessions (no guests, no noise, etc) but never involved the authorities because she also deals with severe mental health issues and I fear that something bad might happen to her if I did have police to intervene. All this time, I have paid my share of the rent, and in the process I have loaned her several thousands of dollars and an expensive laptop.
In early September she began dating again and has since had her new boyfriend move into my home. Recently he prevented me from entering my home. When I called the police, she gave false statements on the report that I pulled a knife on her. While all charged were dropped she allegedly took out a temp family court OOP. I haven't been served yet but I'm afraid to go to my home. I fear she will live there without paying rent and disappearing with my possessions. How do I protection myself and gain entry back?


A: You may retrieve the paperwork from the courthouse. You may then either wait until the court date & make an application before the Judge for an order setting a day to retrieve your belongings, or you may file an order to show cause to advance the date if the retrieval is urgent.
