The Wisconsin family law attorneys of Probst Law Offices can provide legal assistance related to restraining orders and orders of protection whether you need help obtaining a restraining order or injunction or have had a restraining order filed against you.
When you have a divorce or family law matter involving domestic violence, our experienced family law attorneys can handle issues related to restraining orders and orders for protection involving domestic abuse, child abuse, harassment and safety, custody and placement, and issues related to substance abuse.
When you feel you or your children are in imminent danger, it is important to first contact the police and a domestic abuse center for immediate help. To provide for your safety, our attorneys can help you obtain a restraining order which will make it illegal for an abuser to come within a certain distance of your person, including your home or place of employment.
A restraining order can affect custody and placement orders to protect children also. Restraining orders are granted on a temporary basis – typically one to two weeks – until a scheduled hearing is held to determine if an injunction should be granted prohibiting the respondent (the abusive spouse or parent) from contact with the petitioner(the victim and his or her children). An injunction may last several years to protect those who are subject to domestic abuse.
Domestic abuse allegations are always taken very seriously to prevent harm to victims. However, sometimes false allegations of domestic abuse are made when there are custody disputes in a divorce. In situations such as these, the attorneys of Probst Law Offices will represent clients to resolve contested custody disputes, taking a strong stance to protect parental rights in a divorce.
