    Currently, protective orders are only provided during regular court hours to victims of domestic abuse. However, the occurrence of violence has no time frame - it does not only take place or transpire on a nine to five time clock. Therefore, I propose that legislation should be pushed forward which allows District commissioners the authority to put temporary restraining orders on people accused of domestic violence. It is important to note that victims may not receive full protection until the e...

    The affects of domestic violence do not stop when the cuts and bruises heal. The psychological affects of domestic violence can be seen long after the violence has stopped. Many of the criminals that are locked up institutions blame their violent acts on the violence that they were victims of when they were young. It is devastating for a child to witness its mother, or father, getting beat. Violence in the home tends to desensitize family members to all other types of violence, thus making it ea...

    Child safety and Domestic Violence It is amazing to me the children are removed from home, where the mothers have been victims of domestic violence. Also that the victim is often left to stay with the batterer. I am a case manager in a Prevention agency in the South Bronx. One of the families that I am working with the mother was physically, emotionally and verbally by her ex-boyfriend. Her ex-boyfriend also sexually molested her two oldest sons. This man put a gun to my client head and made her...

In seeing that if the abuser is arrested then both families have to deal with court and everything that goes along with that. After looking at a lot of statistics I found that domesti...
