The law provides for situations in which a spouse, parent or child is feeling physically threatened. For example, suppose a father hears the mother of his child threaten to physically harm their children. The father could seek an order of protection.
If you believe you or your child is in danger or has already been the victim of domestic violence, it is important to seek help immediately. Reach out to law enforcement if this threat is imminent. For further protection and to help prevent future domestic violence incidents, talk to one of our attorneys.
Our experienced family law lawyers can help you seek an order of protection. With offices in both Queen Creek and Gilbert, Arizona, we provide comprehensive and compassionate family law services for clients throughout the area.
Protecting Domestic Violence Victims
For those who feel they are in danger or that their loved one is in danger, an order of protection can help keep the family member who could be causing the harm away from the home and from the family member. Restraining orders can also be filed to help extend this protection.
We can help you file an order of protection or restraining order, and can also provide family law counsel afterward. We will re-evaluate the situation with you once the order is up, and can help you with other issues such as divorce, legal decision-making (child custody) and visitation.
Falsely Accused? We Can Help You.
In some situations, an order of protection can be asked for in order to make the other parent look bad. Abusing the system to gain leverage in a custody matter is wrong, and we can help defend you if you have been falsely accused of domestic violence.
