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.
