DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND DIVORCE
Spousal abuse includes emotional abuse, verbal abuse and threats, and may lead to marriage dissolution or legal separation. If you are a victim, you can protect your rights through the legal process with an order of protection or a restraining order. If you are the alleged abuser, a conviction could affect your rights to custody and property. Our attorneys are experienced in protecting the rights of victims and alleged abusers.
RESTRAINING ORDERS AND ORDERS FOR PROTECTION
If the judge deems abuse a valid claim, the order is issued even if the other side is not present. The order goes into effect once it is served on the other party. The order is in effect for one year after it is served.
You have the right to contest a restraining order anytime within that year after it is served on you.
You have the right to a hearing within 10 days of request to contest the order. If the other side doesn’t show up, it gets thrown out. Contact us to protect your rights involving orders for protection.
CHILD ABUSE AND CHILD CUSTODY
If your child has suffered emotional abuse, physical abuse or sexual abuse, we can help you obtain a restraining order or take necessary action to limit the rights of the abuser in your case. If you are seeking a divorce in a child abuse case, we can also address concurrent issues involving custody, and parenting time.
