Defending You Against Domestic Violence Allegations
Charges of domestic violence often arise out of emotionally intense situations, such as an extramarital affair or a contested divorce. Intense turmoil can cause one family member to falsely accuse another, fueled by powerful motives such as anger, jealousy or gaining the upper hand in a child custody proceeding. Unfortunately, even false allegations can lead to serious penalties, including protection orders put in place that can cause defendants to be separated from their children. If you’ve been accused of committing domestic violence, you need an experienced lawyer who is committed to protecting your rights.
Restraining Order Violations
If you have been accused of or charged with domestic violence, you could be facing life-changing penalties, including the threat of losing contact with your children or family. Before domestic violence cases are resolved, courts routinely issue temporary orders of protection requiring the accused to stay away from the home, school, business or place of employment of the accuser. Violating a temporary order of protection can result in additional charges. For example, a temporary order of protection might completely prohibit a husband from communicating with his wife. A call home by the husband to speak with his children could result in a new arrest on criminal contempt charges. Because so much is at risk, it is critical to seek legal representation experienced in handling domestic violence cases.
Types of Restraining Orders
- Temporary Restraining Orders or TRO
- Permanent Restraining Orders
Domestic violence cases can be complex to defend in a court of law and therefore it is important to have experienced and savvy legal representation that can help you navigate the complex proceedings, while remaining focused on protecting your constitutional rights.
