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.
