Domestic Violence Restraining Orders

If you have suffered abuse at the hands of a partner, former spouse, or relative, our legal team can assist you in filing a restraining order against your abuser. A domestic violence restraining order (DVRO) can keep an abuser from contacting your family or coming near your home, work, or school. Additionally, if you and an abuser have children, a DRVO can temporarily assign child custody and child support. If you believe that you are in immediate danger, a judge may be able to file an emergency protective order until more permanent solutions can be addressed in court.

Domestic violence can occur when an abuser:

  • Attempts or threatens physical injury
  • Destroys your personal property
  • Commits sexual assault
  • Harasses or stalks you (directly or indirectly)

The consequences of a restraining order can be severe and if you are the one who has been accused of domestic violence, we can help you to overcome the legal hurdles which lie ahead. Emergency and temporary orders can be effective immediately and it is critical to use the proper legal channels when fighting an accusation. Contacting your accuser for any reason can be a violation of an order and damage your case in court. Our firm can advise you on your legal options and fight to see that your voice is heard in court.
