If you are the victim of spousal abuse and fear for your or your children’s safety, you need an advocate in your corner. Our domestic abuse attorneys will vigorously help you seek protection orders, which serve to provide a barrier between an individual and a family member who has threatened or committed acts of violence. You can petition for a temporary or permanent order of protection.
When an order of protection is issued, local enforcement agencies are provided with copies of orders on the same day. Law enforcement can be called if your spouse violates a protective order, and in some situations, they will be arrested.
Arkansas family law can be confusing, and in domestic violence situations, there may be both civil and criminal cases that happen as a result of the same violent act. Our skilled Little Rock lawyers can help you understand Arkansas law and advocate for the best possible solution for your situation.
In some cases, domestic violence allegations may be unsubstantiated. If you have been accused of domestic violence, this is a serious matter that requires the help of experienced defense attorneys. Sometimes temporary or permanent orders of protection may be sought out of anger when there is no immediate threat of danger or violence. If you have been served with an order of protection, you should contact Destiny Law as soon as possible to discuss your defense and legal rights.
While you certainly can attempt to defend yourself against an order of protection, it is not recommended because the consequences of a loss can be devastating. Criminal and civil penalties for having a protective order entered or for violating a protective order can be very serious — they can impact your ability to obtain employment, carry firearms, or seek security clearance. Our attorneys have the specialized knowledge needed to help defend you against your spouse’s efforts to obtain an order of protection.
