Many family disputes involve violence or the threat of violence. When an adult or a child has been or is in imminent danger of being a victim of violence, Illinois courts will enter an Order of Protection to prevent further harm from occurring. At HRK we take domestic violence issues with utmost seriousness and concern. No one should have to live in fear of their spouse or of being the victim of a violent act. We provide knowledgeable and aggressive representation to make sure that our clients and their children are safe and free of harm. On the other hand, we are also well aware of the ways in which Orders of Protections are used for improper purposes, including gaining an advantage in a contested custody case. Often times our clients need our help to defend against unfounded orders of protection and seek to immediately have such orders dismissed. We offer comprehensive counsel and representation for all of our family law clients with regard to domestic violence issues. Whether you are victim of domestic violence or have been falsely accused of domestic violence, we can offer the assistance that is required. Please call to arrange for a consultation.
