At Mejias Milgrim & Alvarado and Lindo, P.C. has extensive experience in obtaining Orders of Protection as well as defending those wrongfully accused of domestic violence and spousal abuse.
Orders of protection are sometimes sought in anticipation of violence due to a threat or history of domestic violence. An order of protection provides the abused person a broad range of protection in divorce cases. The abuser may be barred from the family home or may be required to stay away from the individual seeking the Order of Protection. The abuser may also be barred from harassing the individual seeking the Order of Protection.
To get relief, the victim must establish that the relationship with the offender is one of the following that qualifies under a domestic violence definition:
Relationship of victim and offender is one of marriage or former marriage or of persons residing or having resided in the same household.
Victim and offender have a child in common.
Victim or offender is pregnant by the other party.
Victim is related to the offender or the offender's spouse by blood as a parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, brother or sister, or by marriage as a parent-in-law, grandparent-in-law, stepchild, step-grandchild, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law.
Victim is a child who resides or has resided in the same household as the offender and is related by blood to a former spouse of the offender or to a person who resides or who has resided in the same household as the offender.
With a divorce as protracted and difficult as mine was, Dave was the sharp edge I needed when I felt anxious and fearful of the outcome. In the end, he did a fantastic job getting what I wanted out of the settlement, and he put an end to the two worst years of my life.Thank you, Dave!
