Domestic Violence – San Francisco Bay Area Law Firm
Domestic Violence Attorney
San Jose Family Law
You and your children do not have to endure physical or verbal violence from your spouse, partner, or family member. If you are the victim of domestic violence or fear for your safety, the attorneys of Hoover ♦ Krepelka, LLP can help you. We know how to file a restraining order to protect you.
If you have recently been assaulted, please contact the police immediately and see a doctor as soon as possible. It’s important to document the situation and the full extent of your injuries. Then contact the domestic violence attorneys at Hoover ♦ Krepelka, LLP for skilled assistance in getting a restraining order.
Temporary Restraining Orders
First we will file for a temporary restraining order (TRO), which is effective for three or four weeks. At the end of that period, we will file to make the temporary restraining order into a long-term restraining order.
Permanent Restraining Order
A permanent or long-term restraining order is effective for up to five years. We are experienced and effective in seeking to have temporary orders made permanent in order to protect our clients.
A domestic violence restraining order can be used when violence erupts between married couples, cohabitating couples, people with children in common, people who are currently or were formerly dating, and people who were formerly married.
We recognize that domestic violence situations are highly emotional and physically dangerous. We can help you with the legal aspects of getting a restraining order, but many of our clients need other services. Please refer to our resource links page for links to women’s shelters and other services for victims of domestic violence.
