You Deserve An Order Of Protection, Not Fear
When going through a divorce, emotional turmoil is sometimes coupled with the underlying causes for the marital troubles, such as financial difficulties, drug addiction, alcoholism or mental illness, and the problems are not initially addressed appropriately. Inappropriate behavior can result in fear or even domestic violence.
Alternatively, the relationship with your spouse can deteriorate to the point that serious but false allegations may be made. These allegations may result in criminal charges and arrest. Your spouse may attempt to leverage these allegations by petitioning for an order of protection.
Unless addressed immediately, criminal charges and petitions for an order of protection can put you at a disadvantage during remainder of the divorce proceedings. They may result in your relationship with your child or children being jeopardized and reduce your ability to protect your property. Whether the allegations are true or not, and regardless of your role, you need an experienced attorney.
