Do I Have Grounds for a Domestic Violence Case?
Though domestic violence is a criminal act that can be prosecuted through the criminal justice system, it is important to consider how a family lawyer can be of assistance in these situations. At Barker Law Firm PC, we help the victims of abuse seek protection through restraining orders and other resources.
Keep in mind that domestic abuse can go beyond just physical assault. It can also include:
- Emotional abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Sexual assault
- Economic abuse
If you feel that you are suffering any type of domestic abuse, you should call 911 if you are in immediate danger. You can also reach out to our Katy domestic violence lawyer, who can help you obtain a protective order.
Representing the Falsely Accused
In many tough family matters – like a contentious divorce or a heated custody battle – one spouse feels the need to sabotage the other. If things get out of hand, one spouse can find themselves falsely accused of domestic violence.
If someone has accused you of abuse that you did not commit, our family lawyer can step in and fight to protect your rights. If someone has filed an unnecessary restraining order against you, we can fight for you in court to have it overturned. We fight for the wrongly accused so they do not pay the price for someone’s false allegations.
