Handling All Issues Connected To Domestic Violence

Arguments between partners or family members often become extremely emotional, and these emotions can sometimes escalate into situations where someone feels unsafe or threatened. In some circumstances, there may even be acts of physical violence that put someone's life in immediate danger.

There are things that you can do if you find yourself the victim of domestic violence, or have been accused of committing one of these acts against a loved one. Groves Law Offices, LLP, stands ready to help you with any and all aspects of cases related to an issue of domestic violence, and can help you determine the right course of action to take in your specific case.

Assisting With Civil And Criminal Cases

Many family law matters have some sort of domestic violence component. There may be allegations of physical or mental abuse, while the alleged abuser may contend that this is being said simply to hurt his or her potential case. It is important to note that there are many different actions that may result in domestic violence claims, including:

  • Calling, texting, emailing or in-person visits to a person who wishes to be left alone
  • Saying hurtful or mean things designed to make a loved one feel like he or she is not important (mental abuse)
  • Physically assaulting a loved one
  • Stalking a person at work, school, home and any other places that they go
  • Monitoring a spouse's calls, texts and emails, and attempting to control who he or she may talk to

Our attorneys will explain exactly what you need to do to obtain or contest an order, and help you take the appropriate action to make sure that everyone is safe.
