Perpetrators of domestic violence will often isolate their victims socially, financially, or both. The victim often stays with the abuser, because they do not have the money to move out and to support themselves or their children. If you are a victim of domestic violence, Heyde Family Law can help you file for a domestic violence restraining order and ask the court to give you exclusive occupancy of your home. If the court grants the request, you get to stay in the home and the abuser must leave and stay away.
Unfortunately, in some cases people are wrongfully accused of domestic violence in family court. This can be devastating, as a finding of domestic violence can not only affect your reputation in the community, but also your right to see your children. If you are wrongfully accused of domestic violence, Heyde Family Law can help.
