There are many different terms for domestic violence, including spousal abuse, family violence and domestic assault. There are also many different types of domestic violence, including physical, emotional, verbal and mental abuse. Regardless of the type of domestic abuse that you are accused of, these are very serious charges and require the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
At the Law Offices of Steven M. Werner, P.C. in Colorado Springs, I aggressively fight for my clients' rights in domestic violence cases. These issues can follow clients for a lifetime, often leaving a mark on a permanent criminal record if convicted. I firmly believe that by examining the entire situation, including law enforcement reports and potentially false accusations, we can construct a strong defense on your behalf.Restraining Orders
If you are accused of domestic violence, the alleged victim may seek out a restraining order against you. The first order issued is temporary, with a more permanent order being established after a hearing. As your attorney, I can represent you in all aspects of restraining orders, including standing up for you in court and contesting the restraining order.Family Law Issues
After accusations of domestic violence, an individual may be facing criminal charges. They may also have to deal with the impact of the charges on any family law issues, such as child custody. A domestic violence conviction may affect the type of custody and visitation that you are allowed in the future. Do not take chances when it comes to seeing your children. I can help you stand up for your rights on the criminal side, civil side and family law side of your domestic violence case.
