If you or your children are in immediate danger due to domestic violence, call the police. Our law firm recognizes that domestic violence issues can be present in some of the families we represent as domestic violence is one of the reasons why people get divorced. Our attorneys can assist you in obtaining an order of protection, which orders the abuser to stop bothering you. The order may require that the individual move out of your shared residence, grant you temporary custody of the children and require that the other party pay you support. An order of protection only applies to you – not your children. If your children are in danger, we can help you file the appropriate petition in juvenile court.
