With a heightened emphasis on domestic violence in the media and in the legislature, police officers are more likely to charge a domestic disturbance as domestic violence than they were in the past. A conviction can be costly, both monetarily and personally. Fines and costs can be in the thousands of dollars and a conviction can affect the contact you have with your family and children. It is important to respond to these allegations early to ensure the best result. Please don’t hesitate to call for a consultation.
Restraining and Stalking Orders
From my experience, Restraining and Stalking orders are abused and used as leverage in Family Law disputes or as retaliation to settle scores between opposing sides. It is extremely important to make sure you adequately respond to these allegations or they can have lasting effects on your future. Please don’t hesitate to call for a consultation.
