How Will an Attorney Help?

If you are being falsely accused of an act of abuse by a current or former spouse, member of your household or family member, then your attorney will work diligently with you to develop the evidence necessary to establish that the alleged act did not occur or that the act was one in self-defense.  If you acted in self-defense, your attorney may advise you to seek a protective order against your accuser.  Additionally, often times in protective order cases, you and your accuser were the only persons present for the incident that led to the request for the protective order.  This means that the evidence is basically he said, she said.  Having a skilled attorney can help you establish your credibility to the judge and call into question the other parties’ credibility
