We work quickly to analyze whether you or your family is in immediate danger and to legally shield you from your abuser. When necessary, we file a restraining order, denying your abuser contact with you, your children, and other immediate family members.

Bollier Ciccone LLP is fluent in helping clients protect themselves and their family members from family violence and in ascertaining critical protective orders in the face of family violence. Domestic violence is not always a clear legal matter and can include physical abuse and psychological or emotional harassment. We are known for realizing tough consequences against abusers, including misdemeanor or felony charges and convictions. Unfortunately, some matters involve family violence and therefore protection of the individual and/or other family members.

Texas domestic violence law protects members of a family (or in a shared household), including children, from any act of intended physical harm done by another member of the family or household. Domestic violence may include threats of physical harm between and among family members that place one or more members in reasonable fear of danger. Family violence is defined as an act by a member of a family or household against another member of the family or household that is intended to result in physical harm, bodily injury, assault, or sexual assault, or a threat that reasonably places the member in fear of imminent physical harm, bodily injury, or dating violence or abuse.

If a court finds that family violence has occurred and is likely to occur in the future, a judge will sign a protective order. A protective order is issued by a court and may require an individual to act or to refrain from doing an act to prevent or reduce the likelihood of family violence in the future. A finding of family violence can have a significant impact on financial or child custody in a divorce. If your matter involves family violence, we can provide safeguards that ensure your safety and leverage your legal position going forward.
