What to Do Following a Domestic Violence Incident

If you are a victim of domestic violence, the first things that you should do are:

  • Call the police
  • Request an emergency restraining order from the officer on-scene
  • Seek the advice and counsel of a domestic violence lawyer

The restraining order may be issued at any time, day or night, and usually remains in effect for several days. During this time, make sure that you have an experienced family lawyer in Los Angeles on your side.

Handling Complex Spousal Abuse Cases

The Law Offices of Korol & Velen is accustomed with the procedures involved in obtaining restraining orders. We can go to court on your behalf, on an emergency basis and in some cases, without notice to the perpetrator to get a temporary restraining order or permanent restraining order issued against the person who is hurting you.

In order to get a long-term restraining order from the court, the alleged victim must have evidence that they are afraid of the perpetrator and that their fear is based on past domestic violence and the threat of future violence. If the court grants the restraining order, and the perpetrator violates the order, the victim can call the police and have the perpetrator arrested.

How Domestic Violence Impacts Child Custody

In the context of family law, particularly child custody disputes, restraining orders can be problematic. If you have a restraining order taken out against you, and you are involved in a child custody dispute, you are at a disadvantage. It is important to seek legal counsel immediately in order to protect your civil rights.

In cases when you are the victim of violence and have taken a restraining order out on someone with whom you are involved in a custody dispute, it is equally important to seek legal counsel immediately to ensure that the court hears all necessary and relevant evidence that your legal counsel can gather.

Our firm has successfully handled hundreds of custody disputes that involve violence. We know that delaying legal counsel in such serious cases can sometimes result in devastating decisions rendered by the court. That is why we encourage you to ensure your side of the story is heard by retaining trusted counsel during this time.
