It is often necessary to obtain a restraining order — at times called an abuse prevention order — as a means of stopping abuse immediately. These orders prevent offenders from contacting abuse victims, and they require that offenders stay away from victims’ homes, workplaces, schools and other locales.
There are a few different types of restraining orders; our firm can help inform you about what’s most appropriate for your situation and obtain an order as quickly as possible.
At times, domestic assault will lead to a criminal charge, wherein individuals may face fines, imprisonment and other punishments. We represent both victims and the accused, with a professional onus on protecting our clients’ rights whenever they might be violated.
It is important to keep in mind that domestic assault need not be physical, and that judges in both criminal and civil matters can consider financial and emotional abuse to be as harmful as violent altercations.
