Victim of Domestic Violence? Recognized for excellence in Family Law

Connecticut Domestic Violence Attorney

What rights does a victim of domestic violence have?

Fighting the crime of domestic violence starts with taking appropriate legal action to remove an abuser from a household and prevent access to the home. If a current or former spouse or boyfriend poses a threat to you or your children, call the police immediately for emergency intervention and to ensure your safety.

Next, contact a Connecticut family law attorney who has experience handling spousal abuse, child abuse, and other domestic violence issues.

Assault Victims TogetherYou can also immediately be connected with a program in your area by calling the toll-free domestic violence hotline at 888-774-2900. These programs provide services that are confidential and they are available to all individuals regardless of age, race, religion, sexual preference, class, or physical ability. They offer safety planning, advocacy, information, referrals, counseling, support groups, and emergency shelter.

Caution: The fact that you are investigating resources for defense against domestic violence may trigger the abuser to take drastic action. Ensure that you leave no evidence such as notes and browser history or cookies that could be found and lead to an incident.

What if I have been served with a restraining order?

Sometimes a spouse, boyfriend or girlfriend files a restraining order that is filled with inaccuracies or that does not rise to the level of a physical threat of imminent harm. It even occurs that an alleged victim will obtain an order by making accusations that are entirely false.

While courts are often cautious when presented with allegations of abuse and threatening, the individual leveling such allegations must be credible and show he or she is in an immediate threat of physical harm.

The divorce attorneys at Bauer Law Group, LLC are ready to vigorously defend you to prevent the extension of a restraining order that has the power to throw your entire life into disarray. Contact us today!
