Domestic violence requires swift action to keep you protected
Living in an abusive relationship isn’t something that anyone should do, but it is a sad reality for some people. The recent divorce lawsuit against Iggy Azalea from a man who is calling himself her common-law husband has brought the ugly issue of domestic abuse to light.
Azalea says that she avoids Texas and that she has to have two armed guards and a police officer with her when she does come to the state. In response to the divorce petition filed against her, Azalea says that she plans to seek a protective order against the man.
That brings up the important point of keeping yourself safe if you have been the victim of domestic violence. We know that this is a touchy subject. We understand that it can be difficult to take action a person whom you love or once loved in court. Our compassion for you stands in stark contrast to the hard stance we take for you in court. You deserve to be protected.
When you first embark upon the process of protecting yourself, you should understand that there are two stages to keeping yourself protected. The first is getting a temporary protective order. This helps you to stay safe until you can get the final protective order. A hearing for the final protective order, which is the second part of the process, will be scheduled within three weeks of the issuance date of the temporary protective order.
At the hearing for the permanent protective order, you can present your case for protection. We can help you get the evidence you need together and present it effectively. From testimonial evidence to photos and other evidence, we can help you with the process. From start to finish, we are here for you.
