Domestic Violence Restraining Orders Integrity & Commitment To Client Service

Domestic Violence Restraining Orders

Handled by Our Restraining Order Lawyers in Roseville

Nobody—adult nor child—should have to suffer physical, verbal, or emotional abuse in a relationship. In California, the Domestic Violence Protection Act allows the courts to issue restraining orders to protect people who have been abused.

At Cecil Cianci Law, PC, we stand up for our clients' rights in domestic violence cases, whether they have been abused or have had allegations of abuse made against them. Contact our law firm at (916) 675-3866 to schedule a consultation with a knowledgeable restraining order lawyer in Roseville.

Representing Your Interests in Restraining Order Proceedings

The purpose of a restraining order is not to punish, but to provide protection against future abuse. For that reason, the orders are issued relatively liberally when there are allegations of abuse. Nevertheless, these orders do have serious implications for the rights of the person accused of abuse, and he or she has the opportunity to present a defense.

At our law firm, we help people who have been abused to obtain temporary and permanent restraining orders, and we also defend people who have been wrongfully accused of domestic violence.

Once someone has been served with a restraining order, he or she can be arrested and jailed for violating the order. Nevertheless, a piece of paper clearly does not provide total protection from violence. If you fear retaliation for pursuing a restraining order, we can carefully go over all of your options with you.

Addressing How Domestic Violence Affects Child Custody

Allegations of domestic violence, both true and false, often arise during divorce proceedings and in child custody cases. In recent years, local courts have become concerned about the use of restraining orders to gain an advantage in child custody proceedings. If you are experiencing domestic violence or have been accused of it, we can counsel you on the implications surrounding a pending custody case.

Helping Clients throughout Roseville, Sacramento & Surrounding Areas

It is important to understand that just because someone is found to have been abusive toward his or her spouse or partner, it does not mean he or she will be automatically denied child custody or visitation. Contact our Roseville restraining order attorneys to discuss any concerns you may have about domestic violence and child custody.
