Take Action to Keep Safe
Domestic violence involves physical harm as well as the verbal threat of physical harm. Many spouses are involved in an abusive relationship but do not know how to get out of the situation. A domestic violence restraining order can help protect you in such a situation. The protective order forces the perpetrator of domestic violence to stay away from you and your children or face arrest.
Help the Children
Witnessing a parent being abused can be incredibly harmful to children. If you are being victimized by your child's parent, you need to take steps that are in the best interest of the children. Divorce attorney Jacqueline Y. Blade can quickly guide you to resources that can help to keep you and your children safe. If your situation is serious, we can also obtain a restraining order on your behalf almost immediately.
Falsely Filing a Domestic Violence Restraining Order
There are occasions when people will fabricate or embellish allegations when they file a request for a restraining order simply to help them obtain a more favorable award in a disputed custody case. If this has happened to you, seek legal counsel immediately so that we can prepare a strong defense and preserve your rights to have access to your children. We do not assist clients who are seeking to file restraining orders without cause.
Mutual Restraining Orders
Sometimes during the process of a divorce it may make sense to agree to mutual restraining orders during the pendency of the divorce. This would work only in certain limited situations such as where there is no immediate danger but where the parties simply need some cooling off time. Your attorney can help you understand whether this is an option that is right for you and your family.
