Domestic ViolenceIn a domestic violence case there is a victim and perpetrator. If you are a victim, the most important step is to contact the police for protection. Not reporting domestic violence or spousal abuse can result in further injury to you or your loved one. You do not have to risk your life any longer and you do not have to put up with abuse or harassment. I may be able to make a positive difference in your life by assisting you in dealing with this situation.
Domestic violence is defined as physical injury, serious physical injury, sexual abuse, assault, or the infliction of fear of imminent physical injury, serious physical injury, sexual abuse, or assault between family members or members of an unmarried couple. It may also include neglect or child endangerment. With the help of an attorney, you may be able to file for a Domestic Violence Order or order of protection against your abuser. This will prohibit any contact from the abuser, including banning him or her from coming within a specified distance of you and possibly your children.
