We Can Help You Get Legal Protection From The Threat Of Domestic Violence
Abuse does not have to be physical to constitute domestic violence. Abuse can be verbal, emotional or psychological. Abuse takes many forms and abusers can use a combination of tactics.
If you are being abused seek help immediately. If you know someone who is being abused, speak up. A lawyer, self help center, or, depending on the circumstances the police can assist you in obtaining a restraining order.
If you do not qualify for a Domestic Violence Restraining Order, there are other types of orders you can ask for. For example, civil harassment restraining orders can be used for neighbors, co-workers, room mates or more distant family members.
Restraining orders are available for an elder or dependent adults as well as workplace violence.
What a restraining order can do:
A restrained person can be prevented from contacting you or going near your home, place of employment, it can prevent a person from being near your child’s school or day care; or it can require him/her to move out of the house, not have a gun, follow child and custody orders and to pay support.
