Dear Attorneys,
What is Jennifer’s Law? Will it help me be successful in my restraining order?

Hopeful Harriet
Dear Hopeful,
Jennifer’s Law was recently passed in Connecticut in the wake of the Jennifer Dulos matter. Jennifer’s Law does change the grounds for restraining order applications as now “coercive control,” is a factor to be considered if you are filing a restraining order against an intimate partner, previous intimate partner, family member or member of your household. For more information, you should read the Bill that has been passed, or one of the many articles online.
If you are concerned for your safety, you should call the police first in an emergency situation and, you should seek the advice of counsel. Jennifer’s Law will likely help many victims of domestic violence feel safer and be more successful in their restraining order applications.
