The Legal Process For Domestic Violence

  • Your lawyer will assist you in finding safe haven for yourself and your children immediately.
  • An application for a restraining order will be filed against the abuser to restrict contact with his/her victims as well as to prevent harassment by other means.
  • A legal separation agreement or divorce will be filed with the Court.
  • A comprehensive financial management plan will be set up so you will be as financially secure as possible when you leave the abusive household.
  • Custody rights and visitation plans will be constructed and enforced with your input and approval.
