Violence in the home at the hands of a loved one is a difficult and terrifying situation to navigate. Likely you are confused, scared, and uncertain of what is to come. What are your options? How do you make it end? We understand this process is a difficult and draining one, and Bonnie Amendola is here to help.
Domestic violence is a portion of matrimonial law in which the victim is protected under both state and federal law, and can be represented in both civil and criminal proceedings. In addition, there are laws in place to help protect your rights when in this situation, such as the 1994 Violence Against Women Act, which expanded tools to combat violence against women and provide protections to women who have suffered violent abuse. One of the hardest parts in seeking to end a domestic violence situation is knowing who to reach out to and how to proceed when handling your domestic violence matter.
