New York City family law attorneys Ethan Steward and Martin Mohr release a new article (https://www.newyorkfamilylawgroup.com/blog/steps-to-take-if-you-are-experiencing-domestic-violence/) explaining what a person should do if they are experiencing domestic violence. The lawyer mentions that domestic violence continues to be a huge concern in modern society. Most domestic violence cases involve sexual and physical violence, while others may involve psychological and emotional abuse.
“Most people who are seriously injured or die as a result of domestic violence have encountered domestic abuse before. However, most of these victims hesitate to get the help required to prevent the situation from escalating. If you have experienced domestic violence and believe that your wellbeing, health, or life is in imminent danger, contact the police immediately,” the article from the New York City family law attorneys says.
The lawyers explain that someone who is experiencing domestic violence should call the national, state, or local helplines to find directions to overcome the situation. For instance, the National Domestic Violence Hotline can provide the resources you need to protect yourself and prevent the problem from worsening.
Attorney Martin Mohr says that evidence is essential when a person wants to establish a strong domestic violence case. As much as possible, they should document the situation. If they are able to, they must record an audio, video, or photo of what is happening. These recordings can be used as evidence to build a strong case against the abuser.
“While you can file and receive a restraining or occupational order against your abuser alone, it is better to handle the matter with the help of a New York domestic violence lawyer. At New York Family Law Group, we have years of experience helping domestic violence victims secure the required restraining orders,” attorney Ethan Steward adds.
Lastly, the lawyer emphasizes the importance of having a skilled attorney when dealing with matters such as domestic violence. A skilled lawyer may be able to help the victim protect their rights and build a strong case against the abuser.
