How a Riverside Domestic Violence Lawyer Could Help
People who are going through a family law matter often have numerous questions, and may feel confused about their individual situation, or unaware of their legal options. This is especially true in cases involving domestic violence, as victims tend to feel helpless and wish to keep everything confidential. If you are being abused within a domestic relationship, you need to seek help immediately. One of the first things you should do is report the abuse to law enforcement. Law enforcement can remove your abuser from your home and protect your individual safety. After you report abuse to law enforcement, you should review your legal options with a qualified Riverside family law attorney from our firm.
Domestic violence is defined as any form of physical, emotional, verbal, mental, sexual, or financial abuse towards a member of you household or family. It could also refer to abuse towards a dating partner. If you feel threatened by a member of your family or have already suffered harm, you could be issued an
order of protection. These court orders can protect the offender from coming near the victim. A
restraining order is similar in that it prevents the offender from coming within a set distance of the victim. These orders are issued by judges in a family court and if a person violates the terms, they could be put in jail or on probation.
