Pierre Domercq Domestic Violence

What impact does domestic violence have upon a divorce in North County? Can restraining orders affect child custody and parenting time? Domestic violence is a serious issue, and Burke & Domercq is concerned about the protection and safety of all parties and the children in these situations.
There are genuine issues of violence, and there are occasions when violence is alleged in an attempt to gain an upper hand in the divorce process. Allegations of domestic violence and the existence of restraining orders will definitely impact the outcome in a North County or Carlsbad divorce.
If you are presently or have been a victim of domestic violence the primary concern is safety. You need our experienced attorneys to help quickly obtain the protections needed to ensure your safety. In these cases we help our clients to obtain temporary or permanent orders and clearly explain the legal consequences of protective orders and restraining orders.
If you are accused of violent behavior your rights are at risk. If you are falsely accused we have extensive experience representing you at the initial hearing and in matters involving temporary or permanent orders. You need the counsel of our experienced attorneys. Temporary restraining orders are issued quickly, and it is essential to follow the instructions in the orders to the letter. “No communications” means exactly that – no calls, texts, emails, personal interaction, or contact through a mutual friend or family member.
We will help you to understand and proactively respond, and work to keep temporary orders from becoming permanent. We will help to develop a strategy to bring the truth to light and reduce or eliminate the impact of these orders on child support, spousal support and child custody,as well as your present and future employment, firearm possession and other important issues. These orders can affect your career, especially if you have an active military career or are employed in law enforcement.
We are committed to protecting those who suffer violence, as well as those who may be falsely accused by a party attempting to influence the outcome of divorce proceedings.
