Domestic violence is defined as physical violence that takes place in the home, usually between members of the family, such as husband and wife. If you become involved in a domestic violence dispute, the most important thing to do is to call the police immediately.
Once the police are on scene and you are safe, you can ask any police officer on-scene for an emergency restraining order, which will usually be granted without delay and may stay in effect for many days. At this time, the next thing you should do is consult a domestic violence attorney.
Our firm is quite knowledgeable about the methods involved with processing restraining orders. We can get the court to issue a temporary or permanent restraining order against the perpetrator. We can request a restraining order on an emergency basis, and in some cases, without giving notice to the perpetrator.
To acquire a permanent restraining order, the victim must have proof that they’re frightened of the offender and that this is founded on prior domestic violence incidents and the threat of violence in the future. If the restraining order is granted, and the offender later breaks that order, the victim may contact law enforcement and have the offender arrested.
In disputes over child custody, restraining orders may be challenging. If you have a restraining order against you and you are involved in a dispute over child custody, you may be on the losing side of that dispute. You should seek an attorney as soon as possible so that you can safeguard your civil rights.
Similarly, if you have obtained a restraining order against the person with whom you are disputing child custody, it is essential to look for an attorney so that the court can be informed about the evidence pertaining to the restraining order.
Our firm has worked on numerous custody disputes involving domestic violence. Through experience, we have learned that entering such disputes without an attorney can lead to disappointing judgments.
