Domestic Violence & Your Divorce
Unfortunately, there are many family disputes that can get out of hand and become violent. From child custody disputes to arguments over spousal support, we have handled numerous family law cases that have needed legal assistance due to instances of domestic violence.
When you or your children are in imminent danger of domestic violence, you can obtain a protection order from the court to help keep your family safe from your abuser.
Under a protection order, the person who is accused of domestic violence will be unable to:
- Initiate contact or threaten you and your children
- Come within a designated distance of you and your children
Regrettably, many disputes among family members feature threats of domestic violence that require protection orders. Because courts have a zero-tolerance policy for spousal and domestic violence, victims can easily seek protection orders when they face abuse or threats of violence. Our compassionate legal team can help you petition the court for protection orders that will keep your family safe.
