Domestic violence injunctions

Domestic violence injunctions are civil protection orders for family members. These orders restrain the potential abuser from having contact with another party where domestic violence occurs or when one party has reasonable cause to fear they are in imminent danger from domestic violence. If you are a victim, we help you get a domestic violence injunction. If you are wrongly accused, we defend you against damaging accusations.
