Raleigh Domestic Violence Lawyer
If you are a victim of domestic violence, you can take out a temporary Domestic Violence Protective Order, or contact us and we will do it for you.
What Constitutes Domestic Violence?
In North Carolina, the alleged act of domestic violence does not need to be physical violence. The court will enter the Temporary Domestic Violence Protective Order if it is convinced that you have been abused (physically or mentally) or sufficiently threatened with abuse. The court will then set a date for a formal hearing within ten days, at which time the alleged abuser is given an opportunity to defend himself. If you are successful, the court will order a one year order of protection. Additionally, the court can award a temporary custody and support order. If you are a victim and are unsure if you need an attorney at the 10-day hearing, please schedule a $99 consult and we will advise you based on your circumstances and our experience on how you should proceed.
What if I am Accused of Domestic Violence
