Domestic Violence Injunctions

“Restraining orders” or injunctions against domestic violence are legal orders put in place to protect you from physical harm.  If you have been a victim of physical violence or feel there is a realistic threat of violence from your spouse, domestic partner or your child’s parent, you should contact an attorney or the police as soon as possible.  A temporary injunction will be granted for 15 days, and a hearing will be held to determine if the injunction will be permanent.

All too often domestic violence is present in contentious divorces.  It is a serious and sometimes deadly issue.
