Protecting You and Your Family After A Threat Of Domestic Violence
While divorce and separation are never easy, when there is violence — or the threat of violence — in a household, it is important to have qualified legal counsel to help you understand your rights. This is especially true if you have children, whose emotional and physical safety is always a concern.
With more than two decades of legal experience handling difficult, sensitive family law cases in California, Gregory J. Pedrick has developed the skills necessary to resolve contentious situations involving domestic violence. Attorney Pedrick and the rest of our legal team understand that family violence should never be taken lightly; at the same time, pursuing legal action as a first response can result in serious consequences for all parties involved. Our goal in these cases is to protect clients’ interests while minimizing the long-term harm to which they may be exposed.
Is A Restraining Order Needed?
A protective order can substantially impact both sides of a domestic dispute. While the party seeking the order will often be given temporary possession of a residence in addition to custody of any children, the party against whom the order is obtained will face serious consequences. He or she can lose the right to be physically present within a certain distance of his or her home, lose visitation rights of children and be ordered to pay child support. Given these potentially devastating results, it is very important to have an experienced lawyer by your side.
