Domestic Violence

domestic_violence_thumbDomestic Violence, also known as domestic abuse, spousal abuse, child abuse or intimate partner violence, can be broadly defined as a pattern of abusive behaviors by one or both partners in a relationship such as marriage, dating, family, friends or cohabitation.

Domestic Violence has many forms including physical aggression such as:

  • Hitting
  • Kicking
  • Biting
  • Shoving
  • Restraining
  • Throwing Objects

Or threats such as:

  • Sexual Abuse
  • Emotional Abuse
  • Controlling or Domineering
  • Intimidation
  • Stalking
  • Neglect

Accusations of this type are extremely serious, and can lead to jail, heavy fines and restricted contact with your loved ones, having a disastrous effect on you and your family. The right lawyer can make all the difference in your domestic violence case. Witnesses are very important to the state’s case and there are specific rules that prosecutors need to follow in order to bring witnesses to court. Often, prosecutors do not comply with these rules, and a knowledgeable lawyer can use this lapse in procedure to get your case dismissed.

Protective Orders

Having a protective order placed on you can cause serious hardship. It can restrict your mobility, restrict access to your children, deprive you of property and cause financial burdens. It is very important to contact an attorney as soon as you are served with a protective order. Not showing up for your hearing or not being adequately represented will cause the order to be enforceable for a full year.
