Domestic Violence is always a difficult issue and it is especially sensitive in New York City. Police, prosecutors and courts are all afraid that the overburdened NYC court system may let habitual offenders slip through the cracks. This means that even minor incidents or misunderstandings get treated as serious offenses. Prosecutors are often unwilling to drop charges even after the victim recants or decides they don’t want to pursue the case.
An individual charged with domestic violence will almost always be subject to an order of protection. Violations of these orders can result in additional charges carrying even more sever consequences than the original offense. Cases involving divorces or joint custody present difficult challenges for defendants who have to obey criminal court orders of protection as well as family court directives. Defendants in these cases need to find a lasting resolution to their situations.
