Domestic violence and abuse is a very serious issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. If you believe that your family is in danger, then it is important to contact the police. If you want to obtain a restraining order, a divorce, relocation privileges, or address other family law-related issues, our firm can help. The Law Office of Steven N. Cole is a Maricopa County family law firm with more than two decades of legal experience and a dedication to providing one-on-one personal representation for our clients.

What Constitutes Domestic Violence?

Being the victim of domestic violence is a serious situation, but how do you know for sure if you have a case to obtain a restraining order?

Any of the following actions could be considered domestic violence under certain circumstances:

  • Hitting
  • Sexual assault
  • Threats of violence
  • Willful intimidation
  • Excessive verbal abuse

While these are all crimes in and of themselves, there is one element that elevates these crimes to domestic violence: When the parties live together.

Domestic violence can occur in any of these relationships:

  • Current or former married couples
  • Current or former dating couples
  • Current or former roommates
  • Blood relatives

If you believe that you have been the victim of domestic abuse or violence, it is time to retain the services of an experienced domestic violence lawyer in Phoenix. You also need to be aware that anyone involved in an intimate relationship can be the victim of domestic violence, regardless of gender. If children are involved and you wish to make a modification to custody or visitation arrangements, then our lawyers can work to convince the court that it is the child's best interests to be kept away from your abuser. We can also work to obtain relocation permission for the protection of your family.

First Step in a Domestic Violence Case

What is the first thing you should do in your domestic violence situation? Contact the police and have the abuser removed from the home in order to provide immediate protection for yourself and your family. Once you have a period of safety, it is time to contact an attorney. Our firm will work with you to get a restraining order against your abuser in order to protect you and your family for the foreseeable future.

Obtaining an order of protection is a simple process that does not take much time to complete. Our firm can file the petition on your behalf and have the order of protection served to the other party involved. This protective order can prevent your abuser from contacting you at home, or other areas, depending on your circumstances.
