Protection For You And Your Family
Domestic violence can become a serious issue in a divorce or child custody case. One person may threaten or injure the other to get his or her way. One parent may file domestic violence charges against the other to get or keep custody of the children. A skilled lawyer can help you deal with domestic violence issues, regardless of which side you are on.
At The Koblin Family Law Center, we have seen both sides of this issue many times and know how to defend your rights. It is important to remember domestic violence charges carry criminal as well as civil penalties. Our attorneys will help you deal with this issue, keep you safe and ensure your voice is heard.
Obtaining A Restraining Order
If your spouse or co-parent has threatened you, verbally or physically, or if he or she has assaulted you, you have the right to file a restraining order against him or her to protect yourself and your family. In California, a restraining order prevents the abuser from coming to your home (regardless of whether you live together) and bans all communication between the two of you. If not already in place, child support and child custody orders may need to be obtained.
Our lawyers can help you put a restraining order in place. We will attend all necessary hearings with you and explain your rights and responsibilities when it comes to dealing with your spouse or co-parent from here on out. Keeping you and your children safe is incredibly important. We will do everything we can to help.
Defending Against Accusations Of Domestic Violence
Sometimes, one person will use accusations of domestic violence against the other in family law proceedings to gain the upper hand. It can be very difficult to fight against these accusations on your own. You need an attorney who understands what is going on to help you defend your rights and protect your interests.
Defense of your reputation and well-being becomes our No. 1 priority in these situations. We review all communications between you and the accuser to show how things may have been misrepresented or misinterpreted. We conduct investigations of both sides to show where inconsistencies may exist and fight to prevent these tactics from working in the opposition’s favor.
