If you feel threatened or have been harmed, contact our attorneys right away to discuss your options. Domestic violence accusations and charges impact child custody and visitation.

Most often our clients say that the unwanted contact emerges during a divorce or other stressful family law matter. Sometimes, your ex may threaten you or make unwanted and persistent content by phone, social media, or email. However, when violence gets involved, you are no longer safe and you need help. A civil restraining order or protective order can help ensure your safety.
We can help you get a protective order if you have experienced any of the following:
Threats of violence
Unwanted contact, including electronic contact or showing up at your home or workplace.
