Experienced Advice From Knowledgeable Family Law Attorneys

The stresses and strains of marriage and impending separation can result in violent outbursts between spouses. In these unfortunate situations, one spouse may seek a protective order against the other spouse.

If you are seeking a protective order or if a protective order alleging violence has been served upon you, the experienced Fairfax domestic violence attorneys at Becker, Kellogg & Berry, P.C., will provide you with experienced guidance and counsel. We provide advice and representation to clients in Northern Virginia regarding protective orders and allegations of domestic violence as well as many other family law matters.

Assistance Seeking and Defending Against Protective Orders

If you have been the victim of domestic violence or spousal abuse, you have options to protect yourself. A victim of domestic abuse may seek a court order to provide protection against feared or actual imminent physical injuries. The content of a protective order, sometimes called a restraining order, will depend on your specific situation, but it may prevent the abuser from having contact with you.

The first step is to seek a preliminary protective order in Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. If the judge approves a preliminary protective order, a hearing will be scheduled to determine whether to issue a protective order that can last up to two years.

Whether you are seeking a protective order because you are the victim of spousal abuse or whether you are defending yourself against these allegations, Becker, Kellogg & Berry, P.C., can assist you.
