Domestic Violence Lawyer Caring & Effective Legal Advocacy

San Diego Domestic Violence Lawyers

Helping to Protect Victims of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a serious criminal offense that can result in jail time, fines, and a permanent criminal record. When violence or the threat of violence accompanies a divorce or any other family law dispute, a restraining order may become necessary.

At Claery & Hammond, LLP our family attorneys represent clients in cases involving allegations of domestic violence. Our lawyers also assist clients in matters pertaining to restraining orders and orders of protection when stalking, harassment, or the threat of immediate physical harm is involved. It is essential that you enact a San Diego domestic violence lawyer’s help if you are a victim of domestic violence or if you have been accused of domestic violence in San Diego.

Help for Domestic Violence

Luckily, there are legal options available for individuals and families confronted with domestic violence. Sometimes restraining orders, also known as orders of protection, can be placed against the person who is accused of domestic violence. Your San Diego domestic violence attorney will help you either obtain a restraining order or fight against one.

Another option available to victims of domestic violence is to file an affidavit at your local courthouse testifying to the threat that has been made against you. If you believe you are in immediate danger or under threat from a spouse, former spouse, relative, boyfriend, or girlfriend, a judge will review and grant a temporary restraining order forbidding the person threatening you from having close contact with you.

Enlist Skilled Legal Help

Cases involving domestic violence and children can significantly impact things like custody and visitation rights.
