California Same Sex Domestic Violence Attorneys
Restraining Orders for Domestic Violence
Gay and lesbian couples face the same issues that all other couples face, including domestic violence. Domestic violence is defined as violence between spouses, domestic partners, family members or cohabitants (people who live together.) This may be physical, sexual or emotional in nature and can result in serious injury or even death to the victim. For this reason, all cases involving domestic violence are taken very seriously in California. A victim can seek a restraining order to obtain legal protection from further violence or contact from the offender.
You will benefit from consulting a compassionate and experienced attorney about your legal matter if it involves domestic violence or a restraining order. You may be unsure of what rights you have in filing or defending yourself against a restraining order, but an attorney can shed light on this for you so you can take immediate action to protect your future.
