While the Law Office of Karen Schoenau maintains a strong family law practice, we also serve our clients’ needs in other important matters, including domestic violence.
Our experienced attorneys often handle domestic violence cases, bringing and contesting motions for orders for protection and injunctions against harassment (commonly referred to as “restraining orders”). We are familiar with the court system and do not hesitate to take every action necessary to help you achieve the results you depend on.
We know that everyone’s situation is different. No one deserves violence, and we fight hard to protect our clients from harm. If you are a victim of domestic violence, you have every right to petition the courts for an order for protection. We can help.
At the same time, we are aware that orders for protection are often unfairly used to gain leverage in a divorce or child custody proceeding. In these cases, we do whatever it takes within the bounds of the law to protect our clients’ rights.
The consequences of having an order for protection against you can be serious. They can have a permanent effect on your relationship with your children. And can lead to more long-lasting criminal implications.Talk to a Lawyer About the Law on Domestic Violence
