The Sad Truth of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence involves any violent, forceful, or threatening and abusive speech or action inflicted on another. Unfortunately, the vast majority of domestic violence incidences go unreported as the victims quietly suffer through repeated patterns of abuse. If you or someone you know has experienced this serious offense, protection is available.
Although the legal system offers extensive protection to victims of domestic violence, the process for seeking and securing that legal protection is not always clear to those who need it most. We understand this uncertainty and want to make sure our clients are aware of and protected by both the short-term (Interim and Temporary Orders of Protection) and the long-term (Final Orders of Protection) measures available to them.
Fighting False Allegations
Though no accusation of domestic violence should be lightly regarded, there are certainly cases of fabricated and vindictive allegations that deserve investigation and defense. Considering the civil and criminal consequences that may accompany an accusation of domestic violence, it is critical that those affected seek counsel immediately to begin taking the appropriate corrective action.
