Accused Of Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is an extremely sensitive issue that frequently comes up during family law legal proceedings. Occasionally, one party involved in a divorce or child custody battle may falsely accuse the other party of abuse, attempting to gain leverage in the legal process. When this happens, it is critical to speak to a domestic violence attorney who can quickly and efficiently take action on behalf of the accused.

Once the alleged victim files for an injunction, a court hearing will be scheduled within 15 days. A temporary injunction is in effect until the hearing date. During the hearing, a judge will consider the evidence and determine whether a permanent injunction will be issued. During this hearing, it is critical to have representation from an attorney experienced in domestic violence defense.

Victims Of Domestic Violence

If you or your children are the victim of abuse by a spouse, significant other or other member of the household, you may want to seek a restraining order or protection order to keep you and your family safe. A restraining order is issued by a judge and can be specified to address and stop specific behavior.

Talk to our attorneys to find out what type of restraining order is most appropriate for your situation.
