Domestic violence usually refers to violent or emotional abuse within the home occurring between spouses, boyfriends and girlfriends, parents and children, and divorced couples and can include threats, put-downs, financial control, sexual abuse, isolation, and intimidation, and violent acts. We will strive to reveal all the facts of the case and help those that have been wrongfully accused.
Stalking and harassment includes offensive or threatening behavior that would reasonably cause fear in another person, but does not result in bodily harm. This can include harassment by mail and phone, pursuing someone with the purpose of harassment, interference with a restraining order, and aggravated harassment.
Have you been accused of cyberstalking? Cyberstalking is defined as the use of the internet, e-mail, or other electronic modes of communication to stalk, usually with a pattern of malicious behavior. Like stalking, cyberstalking must cause reasonable fear in the person bringing the charges. Cyberstalking can carry up to a nine month jail sentence and $150,000. Our attorneys can help defend your rights, including the First Amendment.
The purpose of a protective order is to safeguard victims from coming into contact with their alleged abusers. For domestic violence victims, orders of protection can stop threatening behavior, as well as other requirements such as vacating a residence, returning property, paying bills, and more. Talk to an experienced attorney here at Weingart Law Firm if you have any questions about the parameters of orders of protection and what can be included in these orders.
When an order of protection is issued, it must be enforced at all times, no matter the place or state. This prevents alleged abusers from coming into contact with their victims across state lines or otherwise violate the order in any way. If you have questions about the extent of a protective order or have been charged with violating a protective order, contact us to speak with experienced attorney here at the Weingart Firm.
Being charged for domestic violence can result in prison time, fines, counseling, probation and more. The seriousness of the crime will determine the charge and the subsequent charges if convicted. Here you can learn more about what constitutes most misdemeanor charges versus felony charges on domestic violence. If you have any questions, contact the Weingart Firm to consult with an experienced attorney.
Questions of child custody during a domestic violence case can be confusing and difficult to navigate through.

Talk to one of our experienced attorneys for a case review and clear answers to your questions.
