Domestic Violence Injunctions
If you or your children have been victims of domestic abuse, you can seek protection in the form of a domestic violence injunction. Also known as a restraining order or no-contact order, an injunction will prohibit the abuser from approaching you or your children. It can also prevent the abuser from harassing you.
Ms. Salcido can help you pursue a domestic violence injunction. Depending on your situation, you may be able to obtain an immediate or temporary order on an emergency basis. You can also seek temporary custody order to protect your children from harm. The court will then require a follow-up hearing to consider establishing a long-term — or even permanent — injunction. You can rely on attorney Salcido to guide you through each stage of the process.
