Discover How Our Firm Can Help
Clients who walk through our doors are often experiencing issues that involve

When you are seeking legal representation, it is vital to secure advocates
with an in-depth knowledge of the areas of law pertaining to your situation.
At Gillett Law, our team possesses substantial experience helping clients
with even the most complex of cases and in all areas of family law. When
you work with our firm, we will take the time to understand your needs
in order to craft a legal strategy to meet your family’s goals.

- Property division
- Child custody
- Domestic violence
- Spousal support
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.
