Defending Against an Order of Protection
During divorce or child custody proceedings, it is fairly common for one spouse to accuse the other of domestic abuse in an attempt to gain a perceived legal advantage. It is important to remember that just because one spouse is alleging domestic abuse does not mean that the other is guilty — or that the alleged abusive activity actually happened.
At The Mandel Law Firm, we vigorously defend individuals against restraining orders that are unwarranted. Although courts will usually err on the side of caution in these matters, our firm will do whatever we can to protect your rights. With hard work and preparation, we have successfully resolved many of these cases in our clients’ favor and have had these false allegations of domestic violence dismissed.
