Summary of New York State Domestic Violence and Related Laws by Subject (beginning from 1995)

Each year, hundreds of bills are signed into law in New York State.  This summary is designed to make it easier to find laws by the subject areas they address.  Most of the laws included in this summary focus specifically on domestic violence.  Additional laws, that are not specifically about domestic violence, have great potential to affect domestic violence victims and their children.  While many laws could be placed in more than one subject category, we have attempted to place each law in the section most likely to be searched.  Each subject category begins with the most recent laws and continues back to 1995.
