Question: My husband was arrested for domestic violence. Do I have to let him stay in our shared home?
Answer: A person arrested for domestic violence does not automatically have to be banned from the place both people are living, communal residence. It is up to the occupants of the home to make this decision. If you feel unsafe and do not want to have a person who was living with you be allowed in the home you may want to file an order of protection. Once served an order of protection will grant only the filing party access to the home. Orders of protection can be filled at any court. For more information visit your local court or go to:
