Strong, Experienced Help When Domestic Abuse Affects Your Life
Sometimes when couples separate, there are acts of domestic violence between the parties. Domestic violence is not limited to physical violence. It can be emotional abuse, verbal abuse, harassment, stalking and many other types of conduct.
It is important to have a decade of experience to help you through this troubling time. At [nap_names id=”FIRM-NAME-1″], we represent both victims and innocent defendants throughout Orange County. Since 2001, we have won awards from our colleagues and thanks from our clients for our skillful yet compassionate service for domestic abuse survivors.
Domestic Violence And Your Children
If children are involved, a restraining order can impact other family legal issues, including your child custody (time-sharing) arrangement. The order can extend to your children, as well. For example, if you obtain a protective order for you and your child against their other parent, it forbids the parent from coming within a certain distance of the child or entering the domicile where the child resides. A restraining order can also be an important step toward gaining primary or full custody of your children to shield them from future abuse.
Defending The Rights Of The Accused
We also understand that in some situations an innocent person faces unjust accusations of abuse. Our lawyers can represent you assertively, working to gather evidence and clear your name. In one case we handled, our client’s ex-partner falsely accused him of abuse and tried to keep their two children from him. We not only proved his innocence but also won him full custody of their kids.
