Ready To Help If Domestic Violence Is An Issue
If you are in imminent fear of bodily harm or if you have been physically harmed, you need to call the police. But calling the police should never be used as a weapon in a divorce action. It is too serious a charge to be used for anything less than a serious threat to safety.
Taking Immediate Action
At The Law Offices of Abbott & Abbott, P.C., in Canton and Marietta, Georgia, we take physical threats and actual violence to families very seriously. When there is a genuine issue of physical violence, children and all members of the family can be irreparably harmed physically and psychologically.
- If you are faced with family violence, call for immediate help from the police and talk to your lawyer about obtaining a restraining order against the person trying to harm you.
- If you have been unfairly served with a restraining order or falsely accused of domestic violence, talk to your attorney about the best legal defense against the order. Failing to resolve this matter could affect your access to your home and children, as well as your property settlement.
