A Strong Commitment to our Clients Contact Gottholm, Ralston & Benton, PLLC
The first step in any domestic violence dispute is for one party to file for a one year civil protection order. If you or someone you love has been the victim of domestic violence, we can represent you at this civil hearing and ensure you get the protection you need. We also protect the rights of the accused in these cases, defending against restraining orders that could negatively impact everyone in your family.
Domestic violence issues often arise out of divorce and child custody and visitation disputes. We will help you understand how the results of your civil domestic violence concerns will impact your related family law concerns.Domestic Violence Criminal Defense
As criminal defense lawyers, we can protect your rights in court if you face criminal domestic violence charges, which often include allegations of assault. Local prosecutors are tough on all criminal domestic violence charges, so it is important to take these charges seriously.
The consequences for a domestic violence or assault conviction can be severe. If you are found guilty, you could lose your child custody rights, visitation rights and the right to own a gun. You may also be forced to leave your home.Contact Us
