Individuals and loved ones suffering domestic violence including spousal abuse, harassment, threats of abuse, and stalking may receive immediate temporary and permanent protective orders against a spouse or partner. A temporary order of protection is valid for a period of seven days, at which time you may be entitled to a final protective order valid for up to twelve months, and which can be renewed. To protect your safety, you should contact the police and our law office for assistance in obtaining a protective order from domestic violence. In addition, a final protective order can award temporary child custody and order the alleged abuser to stay away from your home, school and workplace, to not contact you, and to make financial payments. The attorneys at Minshew & Ahluwalia LLP can help victims of spousal abuse and domestic violence, as well as individuals wrongly accused of domestic violence.
