Supporting and Protecting Your Rights
Domestic violence occurs when a person threatens to harm or causes harm to a family or household member. If you have experienced domestic violence, or if you have been charged with domestic violence, we have the knowledge to advocate for your rights and ensure your protection.
For Victims of Domestic Violence
If you have been injured or threatened with domestic violence, we have numerous services to help protect you and your family.
A civil protection order offers more protection than a restraining order. It can be enforced by the police, and the offender can be arrested for any violation of the order. If you have filed any charges of domestic violence, battery or assault, or if charges have been filed on your behalf, you may request a protection order.
A restraining order can be issued by the court during a divorce or legal separation in cases where one of the spouses has been or may become abusive to the other. The restraining order restricts that spouse from harassing, abusing and intimidating the other spouse. It remains in effect until the divorce or separation case is complete.
The police cannot enforce restraining orders; instead, we work with the requesting spouse to report any violation of the order to the court to file for contempt.
