Domestic Abuse & Protective Orders

Defending You Against Domestic Abuse Charges

A domestic abuse charge is a serious allegation. A conviction not only affects your relationship with your family, but also restricts employment opportunities, gun licensing and other privileges.

Domestic Violence (Spousal Abuse)

Domestic abuse is physical, and sometimes psychological, harm inflicted on a member of a household by another member of the same household. This occurs most often between spouses or domestic partners.

While there is no doubt that domestic violence is a real problem, sometimes people are falsely accused as a tactic in a divorce or custody fight. I know how to defend you in this situation.

Orders of Protection (Restraining Orders)

A common procedure in a domestic violence case is to issue an order of protection, also known as a restraining order. You must fight an order of protection if one is issued against you, because it has an immediate affect on your life. An order of protection can:

  • Prohibit any contact with the accuser
  • Order you to move out of your shared home
  • Order you to maintain a distance of at least 100 yards from the accuser, her (or his) home and work
  • Order you to attend counseling
  • Prohibit you from buying a gun
    • An order of protection can also include protection for children and other people living in the home.

      Violating a Protective Order

      If you violate an order of protection, you may be arrested immediately. You can also be fined, put in jail, and potentially charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. It is an issue you must take seriously. Contact me if you are charged with violation of an order.
