The horror of Domestic violence is not restricted to opposite sex couples.
Domestic violence is an issue that plagues many relationships. Domestic violence is not
restricted to heterosexual couples. The gay and lesbian community is also
affected. Unfortunately when acts of domestic violence occur in same-sex
relationships they are oftentimes not addressed properly. The vast majority
of incidents of violence between same sex couples and spouses are not
reported to the police or addressed in court. Fortunately, even if a victim
has not reported a past incident of violence or a threat of harm to the
police, he or she may still obtain protection through a temporary
restraining order obtained in family court. A Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Order
("DVTRO") is an
emergency order made by a family court judge to protect a person and even their children
or others if needed.
The attorneys at Claery & Hammond, LLP can assist victims of same sex
domestic violence by obtaining a DVTRO for their immediate protection.

clients' safety is the highest priority. The entire staff at Claery
