Pursuing And Responding To Domestic Violence Protective Orders

Providing Skilled Legal Advice on Crucial Issues

Domestic violence is often intertwined with divorce. In some cases, it is the reason why one party seeks a divorce, while in other cases, the tensions and conflicts that arise during the divorce process spill over into physical conflict, resulting in domestic violence accusations.

Domestic violence is a serious matter that should never be taken lightly, whether you have been accused of spousal abuse or are considering pursuing a protective order.

It is important to seek skilled legal advice before seeking a domestic violence protective order, except in an emergency, in which case you should contact the police immediately. It is also important to talk to a lawyer before taking any action in response to a protective order.

Orders sought under the Domestic Violence Prevention Act (DVPA) can also involve the children of the parties and can have a serious impact on custody and visitation. These orders can also affect other areas of your life, including such issues as spousal support.

Ms. Witting is highly experienced at protecting the rights and interests of both victims of spousal abuse and clients who have been served with domestic violence restraining orders.
