What Constitutes Domestic Violence?

As citizens of the United States, we enjoy the privilege of being protected from various kinds of harm. These protections govern our relationships with all individuals, including those at home. Family members cannot treat each however they wish just because they are family. Their behavior toward one another must be in accordance with federal and state laws.

When it comes to relationships between spouses, former spouses, parents and their children, or members of the same family or household, there are many forms of conduct that are forbidden and should be reported if experienced.

Forms of domestic violence include:

  • Harassment
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Forcible touching
  • Sexual abuse
  • Stalking
  • Criminal mischief
  • Menacing
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Strangulation
  • Assault
  • Identity theft
  • Grand larceny

If you are the victim of any of these forms of domestic violence, you should report the incident immediately, seek any necessary treatment of injuries, and find a place of safety or shelter. An experienced family lawyer can help in a variety of ways, including filing a criminal complaint, filing a petition in the family court, and obtaining an order of protection to keep the abuser away from you and your children.

Testimonials
  • Mr. Montefusco has the right amount of pitbull in him and uses it when the opportunity requires.

    “Mr. Montefusco and his assistant were and continue to be excellent.”

  • You don't need a guppy, you need a Barracuda!

    “I was recommended to The Montefusco law firm by a friend who is a lawyer. He told me "You don't need a guppy, you need a Barracuda"! From the first free consultation (many years ago) to the present day, the entire staff was courteous, punctual, professional, and tolerant. I say that because I can be a tough customer to deal with, and I was never treated that way. I was always given the respect, time, and the opportunity to be heard. Hope and Monica were great on the phones, and taking down my concerns, and relaying them to Robert, Meaghan, or Maureen. I had a particularly rough time with my EX, and I was fighting for the rights of my son, and him now living with me. Robert had my back through the whole process. I am 100% satisfied with the outcome, and the entire team should take a bow! Robert always knew just what to say, and how to calm me down in moments of disbelief in the ongoing battles, and I feel I can include him in my 'inner circle' of friends. Meaghan did a great job of re-writing all of my oppositions, and even took my calls when she was at her home. And last but not least is Maureen. Maureen is a paragon. She could answer every question I had, and always gave me the respect I deserved. She and I got to know each other pretty well on the phones, and through emails. Often times I called to talk to Robert, and Maureen picked up, and helped me through my concerns. Thank you Robert, Meaghan, Maureen, Hope, and Monica! You made a really bumpy road seem navigable, and throughout the process, there was always a shining light at the end of the tunnel!”

  • Thanks from our hearts.

    “You were there when we felt our world was torn apart.”

    Matthew

  • Robert is not a stranger to arguing a motion. An added benefit that helped with my selection of Robert was his prior background as a Suffolk County Assistant District Attorney.

    “Although I am not an attorney, I deal with a lot of contact, intellectual capital and real-estate attorneys regularly and I’m a pretty good judge of character. Robert’s representation of me was outstanding!”

    Robert D.

  • It all came true and I was very happy and relieved when it was all over.

    “I’ve already recommended him twice to people I know.”

    Judy B.

  • What was most impressive, was his caring, both for the child and us, the grandparents.

    “The court awarded us custody and the child never entered the foster care system.”

    John

  • THE LAW OFFICE OF ROBERT MONTEFUSCO IS ONE IN A MILLION

    “Robert and his staff have always went above and beyond for me throughout every step of my brutal divorce and custody process. My case is currently still open and we are in 3 court rooms. Robert is exceptionally educated, experienced, and understanding when it comes to matrimonial law. The past 2 years of my life have been the most darkest and at times unbearable because of the mistake I made in choosing the wrong partner. At times, I would call their office literally 3-4 times A DAY panicking, stressing, obsessing, and mostly crying. I never felt I was annoying them or a nuisance; they were ALWAYS there for me. Robert is not only my attorney, many times he acts as my therapist and calms me down and subsides my fears. Maureen was there beside me to sign the papers to file for the hardest decisions of my life and she always helped in making the process as smooth and seamless as possible. Hope is an amazing asset as well. She is always there to answer any questions I have and always was an extra pair of ears for me to vent to. In choosing this law firm you not only get an amazingly experienced attorney, you get a FIGHTER. Robert defends and protects me aggressively and passionately every single court appearance. For the first time in my life I have absolutely NO FEAR walking into the courtrooms ever anymore because HE is by my side. I am confident that I not only have an amazing group of people working on my case every day, but I have found friends for the rest of my life. The words Thank You will never be enough for what each of them have done for me during this difficult time in my life. You guys ROCK!”
