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.

    "I don't have enough words to describe how outstanding this firm was."
    Smart, Strategic, Compassionate, Professional… I don't have enough words to describe how outstanding this firm was. As a man/father, dealing with family court can be very daunting and stressful. It’s as though all odds are against you. Any oversight can and will hurt you. In tough times, you are going to need a strong and honest attorney who can lay down the facts and push for your desired outcome. The Law Office of Paulette Hamilton is just that… efficient, effective, and professional. Attorney Hamilton (including her staff) were always available. They took the time to listen to all of my questions, comments, and/or concerns. Not only does it feel great knowing I’ve done all I could regarding my issue, it felt even better knowing I had the best resource for the best outcome. I was very impressed with how my case was handled. There was an amazing feeling knowing I had a powerful attorney and a powerful team on my side. I highly recommend The Law Office of Paulette Hamilton!!

    "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.

    "She was able to show me the light at the end of the tunnel."
    Ms. Hamilton has been and still is a wonderful Attorney to me. Ms. Hamilton has assisted my family 3 different occasions; 2 accident cases and family (child support issues) and I have been happy with the outcome of all 3 cases. She has worked extremely hard on my cases and even when I thought things weren't going the way I wanted them to, she was able to show me the light at the end of the tunnel. She took the time out to explain to me the things that were happening in my case to ensure that I understood them. I am more than confident in Ms. Hamilton's ability to handle any situation and trust her opinions on the decisions I should make. I would most definitely recommend Ms. Hamilton as an attorney, she knows the law and only wants what is truly best for her clients.
