Your situation is unique. As such, you need to be able to tell your story in a safe environment with an attorney who can advocate on your behalf. Fournier Law represents clients in a variety of domestic violence cases, such as:
If you or your children have been subjected to threatening, abusive, or violent behavior in your home, then you have the right to petition for an injunction for protection against domestic violence. We can petition the courts on your behalf and work toward getting your injunction approved.
Dating violence can take on many forms such as sexual abuse, sexual assault, physical abuse, verbal threats, or stalking. It often occurs in the context of dating. If you feel threatened by someone that you date, you may have the right to file an injunction for protection against dating violence.
Sexual violence cases may include molestation, rape, or assault. Unfortunately, many sexual violence cases go unreported or do not lead to a conviction. We are committed to helping you see that justice is done by filing an injunction for protection against sexual violence and staying at your side every step of the way through your case.
You can put an end to stalking by submitting an injunction for protection against stalking. This can halt vicious behavior such as unwanted visits, messages, or phone calls; ongoing slander; or an attempt at obtaining information about you. Let us engage with the other party on your behalf to give you the leverage you need to stop the stalker.
Repeat offenders may include those who are either arrested or convicted of violence on more than one occasion. Each time a person gets away with violence, they tend to become more violent, feeling like they are above the law. But you don’t have to live under this cloud of fear. Our law firm can help you file an injunction for protection against repeat violence.
The underlying goal of any injunction for protection is to get you immediate protection from your abuser while the legal system works to set up a full-blown hearing for your case. In these situations, you (as the filing party) will not be asked to pay any filing fees and, if the allegations of abuse are accepted by the judge, the judge will sign the injunction. At that point, your abuser will be presented with a court order demanding that they have no contact with you for 15 days or until a full hearing can be held.
Fournier Law is here to help you with all aspects of your case from start to finish. Some of the legal services we provide include:
We are committed to providing you with the unwavering support and advocacy you need, as well as preventing further violence from happening to you or your family.
