Protection for Abused Victims
If you are being abused by a spouse or a family member, we can help you
obtain a protection order. This is a civil order that can be obtained from the
Family Law Court. Our attorneys can help you fill out the paperwork, file it, and
help you prepare for your hearing with a judge.
What can a protection order do?
- Prohibit the abuser from threatening or harassing you
- Prohibit the abuser from entering your home
- Give you temporary custody of children
- Order the abuser to attend counseling
If you need an emergency order or need help enforcing an order that has
been violated, we are ready to protect you.
