Domestic Violence and Restraining Orders in Divorce
Domestic violence restraining orders in Carlsbad or anywhere in North County can have a significant affect on child custody and other aspects of your divorce. The experienced domestic violence and divorce attorneys at Burke & Domercq have each represented clients in restraining order cases before North County courts for decades. How will this impact your life and your divorce?
Our Carlsbad divorce and family law firm brings a balanced and informed approach to obtaining or defending a domestic violence restraining order. When genuine cases of domestic violence or abuse occur it is important to immediately protect the spouse and any children in the household. Unfortunately, this same process is often abused by those who would seek to gain an advantage in the process of a divorce.
If you have been served with protective orders it is important to clearly understand the implications of a restraining order and how to protect your rights. Our experienced attorneys help you to mount a defense, especially when circumstances have been blown out of proportion or outright fabricated in order to gain advantage in a divorce.
Family Law encompasses all aspects of divorce, child custody and parenting time, property division, spousal support, child support, post decree modifications, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, domestic violence and paternity.
