Is there anything i legally can do to get my sisters abusive boyfriend away from her even if she doesnt want?

Hes been beating her,verbaly and mentaly abusing her and i cant sit and watch anymore. is there anything i can do involving the police if she doesnt want to press charges? in ny state you have to wait untill something is happening inorder to be able to arrest him with out her concent. why do i have to wait till it might be too late and she ends up dead?? is there anything i can do now while there not fighting?? shes 26 she doesnt have a guardian.

Sorry there is nothing you can do, but try to get her away from him. I really don't think anyone can do anything about it. It looks like she don't want your help. I can't believe she would let someone treat her like crap. Have you gone to the police station to see if they know anyway to help her? The only thing you can do is try to take some since into her and boost her self esteem. It sounds like she has low self esteem and that is why she stays with him.

Why not have a *nice* little chat with him? If he has an agressive nature then you could push his buttons, then have him arrested. At least you can be prepared if something happens, unlike your sister. If you do though, he could end up taking it out on your sister which you will have to be vigilant. If I witnessed my sister being harmed by someone, the guy would be hitting the pavement while I called the cops. I believe there is a law where you can defend someone against an agressor and it be perfectly legal. Might have to look it up. The reason your sister doesn't want to leave him is either because she is scared to be without a man, scared of what he is capable of, or completely deluded into thinking a punch in the eye is love. You know your sister better than anyone else, so only you would know why she doesn't want to leave him.

Talk to the District Attorney in the county where you live. The police, in most areas, are supposed to take the man into custody if a woman shows signs of injury. Contact the county health department. Mental health case workers should be able to arrange for counseling...for both of you. If you have a big brother with some friends, there are ways to deal with the dirt bag if the police will not.
