Is Domestic Violence A Factor In Your Family Dispute?

As an experienced divorce lawyer in Massachusetts, Leila J. Wons understands the impact domestic abuse can have on a divorce or custody matter. Emotions are already high, and it can be difficult to find resolution without the help of a compassionate and dedicated domestic violence attorney.

 

Representing Victims Of Spousal Abuse And Domestic Violence

If you are a victim of domestic violence, we can help you through the process of getting a divorce. We know how difficult it can be to take that step into a new life, but we will do everything we can to provide you with support, advice and representation you need to handle a divorce, custody action or other family law matter.

If you are in fear for your safety or the safety of your children, it may be helpful to obtain restraining order, also known as an abuse prevention order or 209A. The process to get a restraining order is simple, and you can obtain one on your own at the courthouse. However, we can also help you through this process by representing you at the initial hearing and also at the return hearing at which the restraining order may be extended.

Do You Have Questions About A Restraining Order?

If you have been accused of spousal assault or another form of domestic assault, it can have a far-reaching impact into your life. If a restraining order is issued against you, you may not be able to return home or see your children. You will also be unable to possess a firearm. A violation of a restraining order can result in criminal charges, and any alleged violation of a restraining order — even an innocent mistake — can result in your arrest.

In addition to the legal consequences, your reputation is on the line. It is important to act quickly and seek help from an experienced attorney who can protect your rights throughout the process. Attorney Leila Wons can act as your advocate in restraining order hearings and in family court.
