We expect to get a long with our loved ones, especially those we are married to. While no relationship is perfect, one can expect to not have a certain level or negativity and violence in their relationship. Unfortunately, some spouses experience serious harm, involving abuse of different types and magnitudes.

Whether it is physical, emotional, mental or sexual, certain conducts are unlawful in a relationship. In fact, when a spouse no longer feels safe in a relationship, it is possible to take measures to protect themselves and even minor children involved in the marriage. At Advocate, LLP, our law firm is here to guide you through this trying time. We are sensitive to the emotional nature of these situations, and it is our goal to provide the peace of mind needed by our clients.

For some clients, obtaining an order for protection is necessary. This is a document that could help provide the protection needed from an abusive spouse. Filing this document can be challenging, though, and our law firm has year of experience helping our client file these orders, prove the content of them and ensure they are enforced for its duration.

This is a stressful time for anyone going through this situation. Whether a divorce is imminent or in the process, it is vital that your safety is put first. Our attorneys are well versed in all applicable laws, which allows us to give our clients individualized representation.
