Afraid of Domestic Abuse? I Can Help You Get Out Safely
If you are afraid that you will be hurt - by your spouse, roommate, same-sex partner or live-in partner- take steps now, before something bad happens. I can help you get the assistance you need to make it through this troubling time. If you need to get out of a marriage, if you need to get out of a dangerous situation, if you need a restraining order as you seek divorce, an experienced lawyer will help you stay safe.
Over 30 Years of Strong Legal Representation
If you are going through a divorce , your spouse may falsely allege charges of domestic violence. These untrue allegations can unfortunately impact your changes of custody or the right to visit your children as well as force you into paying alimony. Once you have been arrested and charged with domestic abuse, even if your spouse later recants their allegation, there may be no way to drop the charges. The state of California pursues domestic violence charges seriously.

I will answer your questions about how restraining orders and orders of protection may affect your divorce proceeding and help you to lessen the consequences these orders may have upon your divorce settlement.
