Florida Domestic Violence Lawyers
FAMILY MATTERS CAN BE COMPLICATED
Chad Barr Law Can Help
Domestic violence is abuse that is sustained in an intimate relationship. The abuse doesn’t have to be physical necessarily; it can be stalking, intimidation, isolating a partner from others, withholding money, and emotional abuse. Unfortunately, domestic violence is often more prevalent during a pending divorce or child custody dispute. Our dedicated team provides compassionate legal service during your time of need.
The process begins when someone files a petition for an injunction for protection against domestic violence with the clerk of the circuit court. This can be filed in the county where the filer currently lives, the county where the accused lives, or the county where the domestic violence occurred. By filing the petition, the petitioner asks the court to issue a protective order. There are different types of protective orders. A temporary injunction is commonly issued by a Judge in emergencies and protects for fifteen (15) days. To have an injunction for longer than fifteen (15) days, the Judge must schedule a hearing to allow both parties to present their side of the story.
Whether you are filing a petition against domestic violence or one was filed against you, you want someone to fight for you and ensure that your side of the story is presented efficiently and effectively to the Judge.
We are committed to being responsive, thoughtful, prepared, and appropriately aggressive from the beginning of your case through its conclusion. Whenever possible, we will do everything to settle issues outside the courtroom. Whether through a counselor, mediation, or an outside agency, we are there to help you navigate the system and find the best outcome. If going to trial is the only option for your situation, we are prepared to represent your interests aggressively and with passion.
Our aim is to shoulder as much of the burden of the legal process for our clients as possible. We will work with skill and compassion to achieve the best results for your family.
