DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ATTORNEY IN SALT LAKE CITY

Defending Those Wrongfully Accused of Violent or Menacing Behavior

Allegations of domestic violence can destroy your reputation, displace you from your home, keep you from your children and have a substantial adverse impact on custody and visitation proceedings. Domestic violence is a serious issue, and victims should never be afraid to protect themselves by reporting incidents to law enforcement and seeking an appropriate protective order. But those who are wrongfully accused of domestic violence, which sometimes happens during particularly contentious divorces and custody proceedings, need support as well. A domestic violence attorney in Salt Lake City from Intermountain Legal can help defend you against false charges of domestic violence during family law proceedings.

Handling Allegations of Domestic Violence

Disputes involving family law in Salt Lake City can become very contentious, leading both parties to say and do things they never thought they would. Even an isolated instance of losing one’s temper can bring about allegations of domestic violence. Moreover, false or inflated allegations of domestic violence do on occasion occur. If you have been accused of domestic violence and are facing a potential protective order, you have quite a lot at stake. A protective order can require you to pay temporary spousal support, turn over property, vacate your residence and refrain from contact with your children. If a sheriff has served you with a temporary protective order, you should contact a Salt Lake City domestic violence attorney immediately.

A Salt Lake City domestic violence lawyer from Intermountain Legal can gather evidence and argue on your behalf during a permanent protective order hearing. If there is insufficient evidence that an incident of domestic violence occurred, we may be able to prevent a protective order from becoming permanent. Even if the order remains in effect, we may be able to limit its scope by making the judge fully aware of the surrounding circumstances. Our team has represented clients on both sides of domestic violence allegations. We fully understand how difficult it can be to face these allegations during a difficult domestic dispute. And we strive to be supportive and responsive to our clients during this time of great need.
