Consequences of Being Wrongly Accused of Domestic Violence
It is not uncommon for one party in a family law case to wrongly obtain a protective order against the other party solely to obtain an advantage in a divorce or custody matter. Having a temporary or extended protective order issued against you can have serious consequences, such as:
- Prohibiting you from being near your home;
- Requiring you to make support payments;
- Prohibiting you from contacting your children;
- Prohibiting you from possessing or purchasing firearms;
- Prohibiting you from traveling to other countries; and
- Causing significant problems in obtaining or maintaining employment.
If you have been wrongly accused of committing an act of domestic violence, meet with one of our domestic violence attorneys to get help with dissolving the protective order.
