Forms of Domestic Violence
There are many forms of domestic violence, which include physical abuse, threats of physical abuse, and abusive psychological behavior generated from one person towards another. Although many persons believe that only spouses and children can become victims of domestic violence, others types of family members or individuals who were formerly living with or dating another person can also become victims of this abuse.
How Moore, Schulman & Moore, APC Can Protect You
If you believe you have become the victim of domestic violence, Moore, Schulman & Moore, APC will first consider your safety. While the complicated legal matters are crucial to the outcome of every domestic violence case, we are dedicated to protecting the rights and well-beings of our clients first and foremost. As a result, when you entrust us with your case, we can help you obtain one of the following restraining orders to protect you while we move diligently through the legal process:
- An Emergency Protective Order (EPO): Law enforcement officers can issue this type of restraining order to a victim at the time the domestic violence incident is reported. In most cases, this type of restraining order will only last a couple days, giving the victim enough time to pursue a Temporary Restraining Order.
- A Temporary Restraining Order (TRO): The court can issue this type of restraining order. In most cases, this type of restraining order lasts 15 days or until the hearing to pursue the Permanent Restraining Order. Cases involving physical injury can allow a person to obtain a temporary restraining order even without giving notice to the offending party. However, at the next hearing, the offending party will have an opportunity to present.
- A Permanent Restraining Order (PRO): This type of restraining order can be issued for up to 5 years. However, upon expiration, this type of restraining order can be renewed. At hearings involving PROs, both parties have the opportunity to testify, call witnesses to testify, and bring evidence to court to support the case.
