Seeking legal options for domestic violence
There are a lot of legal options for domestic violence victims and the abuser.
Firstly getting a domestic violence restraining order. You may want to consider getting a restraining order or protective order against your abusive partner by a lawyer. However, remember that the police can enforce a restraining order only if someone violates it, and then only if someone reports the violation. This means that you must be endangered in some way for the police to step in.
If you are the victim of stalking or abuse, you need to carefully research how restraining orders are enforced in your neighborhood. The abuser will just be given a citation or if he will actually be taken to jail id he breaches the orders. If the police simply talk to the violator or give a citation, your abuser may reason that the police will do nothing and feel empowered to pursue you further. Or your abuser may become angry and retaliate. In most of the cases, we need a lawyer that to get the legal things done. In this cases, the victim and the abuser are called to the court separately at first and then finally together to make a final decision.
