Domestic Violence Attorney in New Port Richey
Get the Legal Protection That You Deserve
Being in a violent situation with a spouse or partner can be terrifying. Your partner may have injured you or threatened violence if you seek help. There is a way out. Florida’s domestic violence injunctions can give you the protection you need as you build a new life for yourself.
Unfortunately, many victims of domestic violence do not seek legal help when they ask the court for an injunction. A poorly written petition can prevent you from receiving the protection you deserve. A New Port Richey family law attorney can help you gain protection from violence within 24 hours.
Under Florida law, domestic violence includes:
- Sexual assault
- Other criminal offenses that result in the injury or death of a family member
You can get protection from a violent partner even if they have not physically harmed you. If the judge believes you are in immediate danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence, they can create a protective order.
A violent partner does not have to run your life. For an appointment about a protective court order, contact Dale L. Bernstein, Chartered Law Office today at (727) 312-1112.
