One of the scariest situations for a family to be in is when one member of the family is abusing the others. If anyone in your household is abusing you or your loved ones this is considered domestic abuse and requires immediate action to protect you and your family. If you think you are suffering domestic abuse at the hands of a member of your immediate family, a Covina divorce lawyer can help you take the steps needed to protect you and your family from further harm.
One of the first steps your attorney will help you with is getting an order of protection against the individual that has been committing the abuse. This will prohibit the person named as the abuser from coming within a certain distance from you, your home, your work, your children, and their school. Furthermore, if the individual violates the protective order, he or she may be immediately jailed. A protective order is the best way to prevent further injury and abuse from being incurred by you and your loved ones.
