Rhode Island Domestic Violence Attorney
Domestic violence is an unfortunate reality in too many relationships. Effectively protecting yourself means taking both immediate and long-term action. Having an experienced domestic violence lawyer on your side is crucial.
In terms of immediate action, a person can seek a restraining order that can prevent a person from being able to return to a shared home as well as preventing contact of any sort including in person, by phone or email, or through a third party.
To ensure that you are able to escape all forms of domestic violence both in the short and long term, it may be necessary to pursue a divorce or some form of separation. Incidents of domestic violence can not only be the catalyst for a divorce, but they can also impact a final result in a divorce and/or other types of family law proceedings such as child custody and alimony determinations.
Are Your Facing Domestic Violence Charges?
As a former prosecutor with the Rhode Island Attorney General's office, I can offer skilled criminal defense representation to those facing criminal charges in addition to any related family law issues.
