Helping You Get The Court's Protection

Victims of domestic violence may file a temporary injunction for protection or restraining order after one incidence of violence. The injunction orders the alleged abuser to stop the violence or harassment, and to stay away from the victim and his or her children. The injunction can include orders for temporary child custody, visitation, and child or spousal support. We will represent you at protective order hearings and all subsequent proceedings relating to the case.

You may also file injunctions for protection if you have been the victim of repeat violence, dating violence and sexual violence. Any of these petitions may be filed on behalf of a child under age 18 living at home. If an alleged abuser ignores the injunction, he or she can be arrested and may be charged with violating the order.

Unjustly Accused Of Domestic Violence?

If you were served with a domestic violence restraining order and you believe that it is unfair and unwarranted, we can help have the order set aside or modified if the facts justify it. While we do not condone domestic violence, we do protect innocent men and women who may have been accused unjustly so the other party can get an advantage in divorce or paternity proceedings. We recognize that the system is abused, and we do our part to make sure that the scales of justice tip in your favor.

If you are the accused in a domestic violence injunction situation and you want to try to obtain visitation with your children, we can help.
