DuPage County Domestic Violence Attorneys
Spousal Abuse Lawyers Serving Geneva, West Chicago, and Batavia
Domestic violence is a serious issue that unfortunately often goes hand-in-hand with family law cases. Allegations of domestic violence can lead to criminal charges and dramatically affect divorce proceedings, paternity cases, the allocation of parental responsibilities, and parenting time rights. At Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, our attorneys are practiced in both family law matters and criminal law matters. Many of our attorneys prosecuted Order of Protection cases and Domestic Violence cases as Assistant State's Attorneys. We are highly experienced in dealing with domestic violence allegations from both sides, and we always fight aggressively for the rights of our clients.
Protection from Domestic Violence Situations in Illinois
If you have been the victim of domestic violence or are under threat of domestic violence, an Order of Protection or Restraining Order may be needed to keep you safe. Protection orders are a police-enforceable way to keep a dangerous person away from you, your family, and your home. In Illinois, an Emergency Order of Protection can usually be obtained same-day at your local courthouse. However, this type of order will typically only be in effect for up to 21 days, so to obtain more permanent protections, a hearing must be held to determine whether a Plenary Order of Protection will be necessary. In addition to prohibiting an abuser from contacting you, an Order of Protection may also address matters such as child custody and parenting time, child support and spousal support, or the ownership of a shared home or other property. Our firm can assist you in getting the protection you need from a dangerous situation now and into the future.
