Immediate Legal Solutions You Need Following Spousal Abuse Or Child Abuse

Domestic violence can happen in any type of living situation, including between spouses, boyfriends and girlfriends, parents and children, or roommates. Any time you are in imminent danger from the person you live with, there are steps you can take to create court-ordered distance between yourself and the abuser.

Immediately after a domestic violence call, the police can issue an emergency protective order that prohibits the alleged abuser from making contact with the individual for three to seven days. At that point, the abused individual can seek more lasting protective orders by petitioning to the court with appropriate documentation and forms to prove that he or she has fear of danger in the current living situation.

Our attorneys will guide you through this process, covering all details and carrying the legal burden on your behalf so that you can focus on yourself and others who are in harm's way. We understand the deeply emotional and traumatizing elements of these circumstances, and have helped clients throughout Indiana find the protection they need to escape dangerous situations.
