Seek Legal Help If Violence Enters Your Relationship

Many people assume domestic violence is only physical violence. It can, however, be verbal and emotional abuse as well as physical abuse. A controlling and intimidating partner or spouse can commit psychological domestic violence by limiting the other person's access to finances.

At the Law Offices of Rossana Mitchell, I will take all domestic violence cases, including those involving physical altercations, and verbal and psychological abuse. As an experienced California family law attorney, I know how to handle all types of domestic violence cases, whether the victim is a man or woman. I also represent people who are married, unmarried, divorced or who share a child. You can rely on my advocacy during this time.

Seeking Restraining Orders

Within 24 hours of the incident, seek the help of an attorney. You do not want there to be a delay in reporting domestic violence.

There are several types of restraining orders available: emergency, temporary and permanent. Depending on the specifics of the case, the orders may include:

  • Personal conduct orders — This orders the person to stop contacting, harassing, stalking, assaulting or disturbing the peace of the protected individuals.
  • Stay-away orders — With this order, the alleged abuser must remain a certain distance away from the protected people, their cars, their work and school.
  • Kick-out orders — Also called move-out orders, these require the alleged abuser to leave the residence until the court hearing.

It is best to have a lawyer represent you at the restraining order hearing. I have the experience to present your case to the judge and argue for your rights. In addition, I will explain the proceedings to you and make sure you are aware of your rights and options.
