Domestic Violence & Abuse Law (FAPA Cases)Domestic violence is an unfortunate fact of life in some families. If domestic violence takes place in a family, it may be necessary for the abused family member to obtain a family abuse restraining order under the Family Abuse Protection Act (FAPA) in order to protect themselves and their children from further abuse.
When family relationships are threatened with violence, special understanding and skills are necessary. Gevurtz Menashe attorneys are qualified to help clients through the difficult and confusing process of obtaining protective orders in appropriate cases. Whether part of a larger dissolution case or as a stand alone issue, obtaining a FAPA order requires technically proficient and professionally supportive representation. Our attorneys provide both.
A family member accused of domestic violence also needs legal representation. If a client has been accused of abusive conduct, we are able to analyze, advise, and, when necessary, litigate the facts to obtain an appropriate result.
