Injunctions

Have you been the victim of domestic violence or do you have reasonable cause to believe you are in imminent danger of becoming the victim of any act of domestic violence? Do you need legal council to assist you in defending erroneous allegations that you have committed or threatened to commit domestic violence against another individual? If so, it is imperative that you seek timely advise and representation of competent, experienced and trustworthy legal council.

Judges consider a multitude of factors when determining whether an Injunction is appropriate.  Some of those factors are:

  • The history between the parties, including threats, harassment, stalking, and physical abuse.
  • Whether the respondent has attempted to harm the petitioner or family members or individuals closely associated with the petitioner.
  • Whether the respondent has threatened to conceal, kidnap, or Harm the petitioner’s child or children.
  • Whether the respondent has intentionally injured or killed a family pet.
  • Whether the respondent has used, or has threatened to use, against the petitioner any weapons such as guns or knives.
  • Whether the respondent has physically restrained the petitioner from leaving the home or calling law enforcement.
  • Whether the respondent has a criminal history involving violence or the threat of violence.
  • The existence of a verifiable order of protection issued previously or from another jurisdiction.
  • Whether the respondent has destroyed personal property, including, but not limited to, telephones or other communications equipment, clothing, or other items belonging to the petitioner.
  • Whether the respondent engaged in any other behavior or conduct that leads the petitioner to have reasonable cause to believe that he or she is in imminent danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence.

If you are afraid for you or your child’s safety, do not hesitate to call 911 or your local police immediately.
