Free One Hour Consultation
You and your children do not have to endure physical or verbal violence from your spouse, partner, or family member. If you are the victim of domestic violence or fear for your safety, the attorneys of BECHTEL DUNTON FAMILY LAW GROUP can help. We know how to file a restraining order to protect you, quickly and efficiently.
If you have recently been assaulted, please contact the police immediately and see a doctor as soon as possible. You should always be safe and protect your health and that of your children. It is also important to document the situation and the full extent of your injuries. Then contact the domestic violence attorneys at BFLG for skilled assistance in getting a restraining order.
Temporary Restraining Orders
We will file a request for a temporary restraining order (TRO), which is effective until your request is heard at a hearing before a Judge. At the hearing we will request the Judge make the temporary restraining order into a long-term restraining order.
Permanent Restraining Order
A permanent or long-term restraining order is effective for up to five years. We are experienced and effective in seeking to have temporary orders made permanent in order to protect our clients.
A domestic violence restraining order can be used when violence erupts between married couples, cohabitating couples, people with children in common, people who are currently or were formerly dating, and people who were formerly married.
We recognize that domestic violence situations are highly emotional and physically dangerous and we will make every effort to support you. We can help you with the legal aspects of getting a restraining order, but many of our clients need other services. Please refer to our resource links page for links to women's shelters and other services for victims of domestic violence.
