An act of domestic violence can occur in many different circumstances. In some cases, a verbal fight turns physical. In other cases, a drug or alcohol is a factor.  Whatever the case, the result can be serious injury or worse. And that says nothing of the emotional trauma that you and your children may suffer as a result of the assault.

If you become a victim of domestic violence, call the police immediately, and then call our law firm. In many cases no arrest will be made or the abuser will bail out of jail quickly. You and your children require a permanent solution. The next step is a restraining order. We can help you obtain it. However, the person being restrained must be:

  • a spouse or former spouse;
  • someone you cohabit or cohabited with;
  • the other parent of your child or unborn child; or
  • someone you date or dated on a regular basis.

When you contact the Law Offices of Paul J. Duron regarding domestic violence, an experienced Cerritos domestic violence lawyer will help you understand your options, compile evidence of the abuse, and help you achieve a final resolution. Los Angeles County courts provide several kinds of restraining orders, but a “permanent” (meaning five-year) restraining order may only be issued after an evidentiary hearing, and obtaining a permanent restraining order is a long, complicated procedure. Family law attorney Paul J. Duron can guide you through every stage of the process.

Additionally, our firm can assist clients who are standing up to testify and take action against someone who has been charged with domestic violence crimes. We work to help and guide victims through the legal process, which can be challenging for the victim, especially if your former partner hires an aggressive criminal defense lawyer to represent them at trial. The experience of going to court and testifying against the accused can be frightening and traumatic. Our law firm can help represent you if you’re deposed by the accused’s criminal defense attorneys or if you simply need legal advice and information on what to expect if you testify at trial. We’re were to guide you through the legal system as victims deal with a domestic violence case.
