Domestic Violence

Navigating Domestic Violence or Stalking issues

If you or a loved one has been subject to violence, or if you have been threatened with a restraining order, Shanelaris Schirch & Warburton can help you. With extensive experience in both the practice of law and in working with domestic violence issues, Shanelaris Schirch & Warburton can help you to navigate the restraining order process and to advise you on the best options for your unique situation. It is crucial to have legal representation in these matters, as domestic violence proceedings may result in criminal charges or additional legal action.
If you have been injured, falsely imprisoned or threatened by a household member, or by a current or former partner, you may be able to obtain a Domestic Violence Protective Order. The law protects you from abuse, and does not require you to file for divorce or pay court fees in order to obtain protection. A judge can provide emergency protection under this type of order, and can also make orders regarding child custody, use of personal property and use of the family home. If you have been accused of domestic violence, Shanelaris Schirch & Warburton can help you preserve your parental rights, and save your reputation.
If someone else’s repeated behavior has made you afraid for your personal safety, the court may issue a Stalking Protective Order to make the behaviors stop. Even if you have been followed or contacted as little as two times, you may be able to seek a stalking order if those behaviors have made you afraid for your safety. The stalking law does not require any particular relationship between parties; therefore, it could be a virtual stranger against whom a stalking order is sought. If someone has filed a stalking petition against you, you may face serious consequences, as stalking can be a misdemeanor or a felony level charge. Call Shanelaris Schirch & Warburton immediately to discuss your options.
