At the law office of Robert W. Hiatt, P.C., our Staten Island restraining and orders of protection attorney advocates for those involved in abusive domestic relationships.

Dedicated Representation for Plaintiffs and Defendants in Spousal Abuse Cases
No one should tolerate any level of abuse, be it physical or verbal. Conversely, no one should make false allegations of abuse against a spouse as a strategy in a divorce proceeding. At the law office of Robert W. Hiatt, P.C., we represent both plaintiffs and defendants in cases involving spousal abuse.
Protecting Clients From Domestic Abuse
If you are in an abusive relationship, we can help you get out of it. Police action, combined with a restraining order, will get the abuser out of the house. An order of protection legally bars abusers from returning to the property or from making harassing phone calls. During the divorce process, issues may become contentious, which can result in violent and threatening behavior. You do not have to tolerate such behavior.
Fighting False Abuse Allegations
Unfortunately, many alleged victims use restraining orders to get their spouses kicked out of the house and embarrassed at their places of employment. This “strategy” is often used in child custody disputes as a means of securing more time with the children or to receive additional child support. Accusations of domestic abuse do not make them true. That is why we provide an aggressive defense against false abuse allegations.
