Domestic Violence Attorney in Pasadena
Understanding Domestic Violence in California
In the United States, over three million incidents of domestic violence are reported every year. While most domestic violence cases are usually committed against women, men can also be victims of domestic violence. Additionally, harm inflicted on children, other family members, or intimate partners are considered domestic violence as well.
There are many types of domestic violence that can be inflicted on a victim besides physical harm. Other forms of domestic violence include emotional, psychological, sexual, or even financial abuse. If you or a loved one is a victim of domestic violence, our Pasadena criminal law attorneys at the Law Offices of Christopher L. Hoglin, P.C. can provide you with a free confidential consultation to discuss your legal options and help you secure the safety and protection you and your family deserve. Conversely, we also represent clients who are being wrongfully accused of domestic violence by spouses who wish to gain full custody of their children in a divorce proceeding.
Obtaining a Restraining Order
Victims of domestic violence can obtain a restraining order against their attacker to stop the abuse or any form of harassment. However, as a seasoned firm, we know that it can be difficult for victims to report the abuse and file a restraining order on their own. That is why the Law Offices of Christopher L. Hoglin, P.C. offers victims of domestic violence the legal assistance they need to complete all the necessary paperwork and court filing to obtain a restraining order. We are also here to provide dedicated legal services and counsel to help ensure the victim’s safety and protection.
Below are some things a restraining order can do for you:
- Require your attacker to move out of your residence
- Prevent the attacker from entering your home, place of work, business, or school
- Prevent your attacker from gaining custody of your children
- Require your attacker to pay support for your minor children
