Navigating Rough Waters
When A Dispute At Home Leads To Violence
Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior perpetrated by one family member or an intimate partner against another. It is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, nationality or educational background.
Compassionate, Confidential Support For Domestic Violence Victims
Domestic violence is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior, and thus is part of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. This violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma and sometimes death — and its consequences can cross generations and truly last a lifetime. Eighty-five percent of domestic violence victims are women, and an estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. If you are facing the imminent threat of violence, call 911 and report your situation to the police. But if you are currently safe and would like to find a long-term solution to the threat of violence at home, call the Law Offices of Indu Srivastav, APLC, for a confidential consultation. We can help you obtain a temporary restraining order on an emergency basis. Although domestic violence is a horrible experience that no one should have to endure, your suffering can be used to your legal advantage if you decide to pursue a divorce and/or to gain primary custody of your children.
A Strong Defense For Accused Abusers
If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence, you have a right to tell your side of the story as well. Our lawyers can help you stand up for your rights even when your life is inhibited by restraining orders and other obstacles in the course of your legal troubles.
