Protecting Your Rights in Family Abuse Cases

Being subject to domestic violence or the threat of violence as a spouse, partner, or other family member is a frightening experience. You may feel too intimidated to reach out for help.

If you have been a victim of abuse or are facing allegations of abuse based on misunderstandings, exaggerations, or falsehoods, our Orlando domestic violence lawyers are here to provide the legal protection you need.

Call (407) 624-5344 to learn more.

Do I Have a Case for Domestic Violence?

If you or your children have been threatened with violence or have suffered abuse from a spouse, ex-spouse, domestic partner, dating partner, or someone you live with, you need to take action to protect yourself and your family. A petition for permanent protection – a Petition for Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence – can be filed.

These petitions have the power to:

  • Assign temporary custody of your children to you
  • Prohibit your abuser from contacting you at work, at home, via phone, email, or text
  • Prohibit your abuser from coming within a specified distance of you
  • Require your abuser to get court-ordered counseling

If your abuser violates the restrictions of the injunction, it becomes a criminal offense. In order to obtain such an injunction from the court, you will have to present evidence for your claims of domestic violence. Having an effective attorney at your side is essential in this matter.

In cases of immediate danger, a temporary emergency order may be obtained from the court for your protection. This order may also grant you temporary custody and additional protections. It is done only after the judge hears your side of the story. The temporary order will only be in effect until a hearing is held later.

Those Accused of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence accusations are often made when relationships break down, such as in divorce and custody disputes. They may be prompted by a desire to get the upper hand in a legal dispute, or they could be made out of jealousy, revenge, or spite and be composed of inflated assertions or actual lies to harm the accused. Turning to an attorney who can protect and defend you in such matters can make all the difference in how your case unfolds.

    "She's one of the rare lawyers who really care about their clients."
    If you need a lawyer who cares about more than the 'retainer' Paulette is your go-to lawyer. She's amazing. She's one of the rare lawyers who really care about their clients and a good outcome. I saw some complaints that after the initial meeting you are connected with a paralegal. That's how it works unless you want to be billed every hour at full attorney fees. The Paralegal was so helpful. So professional and genuinely cared. Danielle is a true professional and gave me nothing but the best advice. They respond quickly and give you good advice every step of the way. I would use her again in a heartbeat.
