Last week on the blog we talked about civil protection orders and some of the factors a judge may look at when determining whether to modify one. This can be a legally and emotionally complicated subject. People do change, and a once violent person whom you feared may no longer pose a threat. Yet, the individual's background, criminal history, and your current relationship with him or her may come into play. Therefore, when addressing domestic violence problems, whether seeking an initial protection order or seeking termination or modification of an existing one, it may be beneficial to discuss the matter with a qualified family law attorney.
The legal team at Andrew Russ Law is dedicated to keeping its clients safe and protecting their best interests. Though it may seem scary to take what may feel like a very personal matter to court, doing so can provide you with the sense of safety you need to carry on with your life. We know how important this is, and we do everything in our power to ensure those facing spousal abuse and other domestic problems are safe from harm.
Our law firm also works with those seeking to terminate or modify protection orders. We strive to show judges that circumstances have changed and that adjusting the order is justified. These matters may require detailed legal arguments, something that our firm is competent at doing.
Lastly, though you may not necessarily give it much thought at the time, domestic violence can have a significant impact on other family law matters. We work to ensure our clients fully understand the reach of domestic violence and how it can and cannot be used to help them in divorce proceedings. In the end, an attorney may be a powerful ally in your domestic and family law matters, fighting for what is right for you and your family.
