As a victim of domestic violence, you should first focus on seeking emergency intervention in family court for a temporary restraining order. These orders will protect you from immediate harm and let you plan your case for a permanent restraining order, if necessary.
Time is of the essence if you and your partner have children. Increased chances exist that Child Protective Services may become involved to investigate the well-being of any minor children. Obtaining a restraining order with the help of our Tustin domestic violence attorney will help to ensure your children’s safety.
A restraining order issued by the court will order the abuser to stop the abusive actions against you, your children, or those you live with. It can prohibit the abuser from making any contact with you at home, at school, at work, or any place you frequent, and may give you temporary custody of children, order the abuser to provide financial support and/or pay any expenses or loss of income you sustained due to the abuse.
At the Law Office of Tracey N. Lundquist, APC, we understand the difficult nature that comes along with your separation, divorce, or other family legal matters. We will listen to your needs, develop and communicate a personalized strategy in search of fair and just results, and remain alert to the related expenses of all legal proceedings.
