Kane County Domestic Violence Protection Attorney

Domestic Violence Protection Lawyers Helping Clients in St. Charles, Geneva, and Elburn

Domestic violence is far too common in many households, and it often becomes a bigger issue when there are family law disputes involved. For example, when a one spouse wants out of a marriage and the other does not want to get a divorce, a threatening and /or violent situation may develop or worsen.

At the Kane County family law firm of Goostree Law Group, we have a lot of experienced dealing with domestic violence. Our first priority is always in safeguarding our clients physically. To that end, we help clients obtain orders of protection both on a temporary and more long-term basis.

Protection from Domestic Violence in Kane County

Domestic violence includes any physically abusive, harassing, or threatening behavior involving members of a family, household or domestic relationship. Our attorneys take domestic violence allegations very seriously, and we move quickly to obtain the legal protections you need. In Illinois, a temporary order of protection can be granted immediately when there is an imminent threat of violence. For a temporary order of protection, the accused does not need to be in court. In order to extend the order beyond the initial 21 days, however, a hearing is required at which the accused has a chance to offer a defense.

Orders of protection are an important step in fighting against a domestic violence situation because they typically restrict accused abusers from contacting their victims as well as being in close proximity to their victims. They may also cause the suspension of child custody and visitation rights as well as forcing an alleged abuser out of the home. Violating the terms of a protection order can have serious consequences including jail time.

While many domestic violence allegations are valid, it is not uncommon for one party to allege domestic violence against a spouse or child in order to get the upper hand in a contentious divorce or child custody dispute. Our attorneys are experienced in handling these situations. We fight to protect our clients whether they are the victim of abuse or false allegations.

If you and/or your children are in a violent situation at home, contact us right away at 630-584-4800 to schedule a free consultation. We will help you put the legal protection you need in place temporarily and work with you to come up with a strategy towards a more permanent solution. Our firm works with clients throughout Northern Illinois including Kane County and the surrounding areas.
