Injunctions (Restraining Orders)
Intimate partner violence is considered a silent epidemic in our society. It occurs behind closed doors, and rarely does anyone talk about the fact that their abuser is hurting them. Victims of intimate partner violence can be men, women, or children whose perpetrators exert physical violence, sexual violence, stalking, or other forms of power and control over their victims. Perpetrators can be spouses, parents, siblings, children, relationship partners, or sometimes other people in whom you have placed your trust.
You do not have to tolerate abuse. There are ways to protect yourself and your family from the person who is hurting you. You can request an injunction for protection through the court system, which will prohibit your perpetrator from contacting you and causing further harm to you. We understand that the court process can be intimidating. Our attorney has an extensive background in working with victims of intimate partner violence and helping them maneuver through the court process, and she is ready and willing to help you ask for the protection you are looking for.
