You may file for an Order of Protection based on the domestic violence incident(s). You can contact the city court or one of the superior court locations for additional help. If there is an establishment of custody (legal decision making, parenting time) case pending or either of the parents is seeking to modify already established orders, the court may take the history of domestic violence into account.
You can file for an order of protection in your city municipal court if you feel you are in danger. The court would require some evidence of: 1) your relationship to the man, 2) examples of the actions that make you feel endangered along with relevant dates the actions occurred on. As to the relevance of an order of protection occurring after the fact in a DV case, that would be a question for the prosecutor in that case.
The above is not intended as legal advice. The response does not constitute the creation of an attorney client relationship. Also, please use caution when reviewing answers to questions posted by out-of-state attorneys. Each state has specific laws and out-of-state attorneys are often unfamiliar with the intricacies of the laws in states that they do not practice in.
