Get Immediate Assistance!
If you or a loved one has suffered physical abuse, threats, or intimidating behavior, we can assist you in obtaining a temporary protective order (TPO) from a judge in a matter of minutes. The TPO is a civil legal order that prohibits the person named from going near you or your family. If that person violates the order, the police can arrest him or her. A hearing for a long-term protective order will be scheduled 10 to 30 days after the TPO is issued.
Providing the Protection that Your Family Needs
Our experienced Alpharetta attorney can provide representation at the long-term protective order hearing designed to get the protection you and your family need. The judge will also make decisions about living arrangements and child custody, and our firm will actively pursue the goal of protecting your custody rights.
Unfortunately, during divorce and child custody battles, false accusations of domestic violence are not uncommon, when the other side is hoping to gain an advantage. Our firm also defends clients accused of battery and domestic violence, in both civil and criminal proceedings. Get in touch with our firm today to learn more about how we can assist you.
