Protecting Victims Of Domestic Abuse
If you are a victim of domestic violence, it is crucial that you remove yourself and your children from the situation and take immediate legal action to protect your safety. A domestic violence injunction (sometimes called a restraining order) is a civil remedy you can pursue to protect yourself. It will prohibit the abuser from having any contact with you, whether physically, over the phone or on the Internet. A domestic violence injunction can be granted even if you are not seeking a divorce, even if you have not reported the abuse to the police and even if you do not wish to press criminal charges against your abuser.

Have You Been Accused Of Domestic Violence?
If you have been served with notice of a pending domestic violence injunction against you, it is important to hire an experienced attorney to protect your rights. If you do nothing to defend yourself, the injunction can have serious consequences, including negatively affecting your job prospects and preventing you from obtaining a concealed weapons permit. It can also bar you from visiting your children or entering your home as long as the alleged victim is living there.
At the law office of Laura S. Coleman, P.A., we know that you are facing a very difficult situation, whether you have been accused of domestic violence or if you are a victim. We will not leave you wondering what is happening in your case. We make it a point of pride to return our clients’ calls as quickly as we can and to make ourselves as accessible as possible.
