Charlotte Domestic Violence Attorneys

Legal Counsel for Victims of Abuse

Domestic violence is defined as attempting to harm, intentionally causing harm, or putting someone in fear of harm or emotional distress. Here at Miller Bowles Cushing we can provide you with an experienced, skilled, and dedicated domestic violence attorney in Charlotte, NC to help with your case. Call us today at (704) 810-1400 to schedule a consultation with a member of our team.

To qualify as domestic violence--so you can be eligible for consultation with an attorney for domestic violence in Charlotte-there must be “personal relationship” between the aggressor and the victim. “Personal relationship” means the parties:

  • Are current or former spouses
  • Are persons of the opposite sex who live together or have lived together
  • Are related as parents (including stepparents) and children, or grandparents and grandchildren, except a parent or grandparent may not obtain a protective order against a child or grandchild under 16
  • Have a child in common
  • Are current or former household members
  • Are persons of the opposite sex who are in or have been in a dating relationship

With an Order for Domestic Violence Protection, the aggressive party is prevented from contacting their victim in any way for up to one year. The Court can also award domestic violence victims the residence, child custody, financial aid, a vehicle, and/or attorney and court fees. If your abuser violates the terms of the domestic violence order of protection, he or she can immediately be arrested for violating the order.

You Deserve Deserve to Feel Safe

Victims of domestic violence often fall into the cycle of abuse, tension building, making up/apology, the calm, and then back to the act of abuse again. You can stop the cycle of domestic violence by taking the first step to remove yourself or your abuser from the situation. You should implement a safety plan, which includes obtaining a domestic violence order of protection, or “restraining order”. Taking action and seeking the help from an attorney for domestic violence in Charlotte could save your life.

There are several community organizations that offer support to victims of domestic violence. When you are armed with the support of these community organizations and an attorney to represent you in your case, it is possible to feel empowered to overcome the cycle of abuse.
