Domestic Violence Allegations And Orders Of Protection
If you or your children are in danger or have been victims of domestic abuse, we can file an order of protection on your behalf. An order of protection prohibits all contact between the victims and alleged abusers. Depending on the details of the case, the person may be ordered to leave your home, and you may be given temporary custody of any children you have together.
We can represent you at the hearings for temporary or emergency orders of protection. When appropriate, we will argue for temporary orders to be made permanent for two years.
In addition, we can defend people who are wrongfully accused of domestic violence. We defend against orders of protection in family court as well as violations of protective orders in criminal court. Attorney Barhaugh understands that people sometimes make false allegations of domestic assault when they are involved in contentious divorce or custody cases. He will determine the facts of the case and argue for your rights.
