Protection Against Domestic Violence
Domestic Violence Accusations in Texas
Domestic violence accusations may be legitimate or at times may be fabricated
in order for the accuser to attempt a legal advantage during a divorce.
The spouse accused of domestic violence will generally not have judgments
made in their favor if the accusations are deemed valid. A chance at
child custody can be ripped away and
visitation rights can be greatly inhibited. If you find yourself in this situation,
I, Attorney Karenko, can help to fight for justice and protect your relationship
with your children.
If you have been the victim of spousal abuse, it is vital to let your attorney
know. Your spouse may allege that your marriage is not irretrievably broken
and request counseling and mediation be ordered before a divorce is granted.
Making the court aware of the domestic violence would serve to protect
you from being connected to your spouse in any dangerous situations such
as this. Your lawyer can also help you pursue immediate protection and
arrange a no-contact order against your spouse. With such an injunction
in place, your spouse would have to stay a certain distance from you,
you may be granted exclusive use of the marital home, and
child support and visitation may be reviewed.
What are your rights?
After a domestic violence accusation, your immediate rights will be affected
and, if you are the accused, potentially your future rights regarding
your children. It is vital you have legal representation fighting on your
side to resolve the matter as successfully as possible. I, Attorney Karenko,
am dedicated to doing all I can to promote the safety and rights of my
clients. I have worked in the trial courts actively practicing
family law in Texas and Michigan, and am active in local and state bar events. My
thorough experience with family law allows me to effectively pursue the
best outcome possible for you and your children.
