Domestic Violence Attorney Ocala & Gainesville, FL
There are a number of remedies available for someone who is in an abusive situation: mental, physical, sexual, or any other kind of abuse. Immediate orders of protection, where a judge can forbid somebody from coming in contact with you and/or your child, are available for those who need them. It is important to have a skilled attorney with you to ensure that you are proceeding in the proper manner. At Schatt Hesser McGraw, we have the experience necessary to assist in these situations.
While any lawyer could, in theory, help in situations of abuse, due to the incredibly important nature of domestic violence law, we recommend you seek someone who is focused on this area of law. We have experience on every side of this issue and know the court system in and out, using our decades of experience to make this process as easy as possible.
Domestic Violence Injunctions
There is not just one kind of injunction that can be sought from an abusive partner; there are all sorts of orders and rules that a judge can put into place that can help protect you and a loved one. These can be as simple as forbidding someone from sending an email and as complex as a detailed decree that states exactly what the parameters are of visitation, child support, holidays, and more. For every kind of domestic abuse, there is a domestic violence injunction available.
And just because you need an order of protection from domestic violence does not mean that you forfeit your right to child-support and/or maintenance/alimony. It is important to have a comprehensive outlook, protecting you today and tomorrow. While you may be in a state of shock, we will remain calm and collected, making sure you are safe and have all of your rights protected.
