Working Hard To Ensure Your Family's Safety After Domestic Violence

The thought of filing for divorce or a restraining order can be daunting if you fear retaliation by a violent family member. California has specific domestic violence laws to protect people who suffer one or more types of serious domestic abuse.

At Whipple, Mercado & Associates, LLP, our experienced divorce and family law attorneys are familiar with state domestic violence laws, as well as court procedures to follow when requesting or defending against a temporary domestic violence restraining order.

Just as there are victims of domestic violence, there are victims who are falsely accused of it. Sometimes a party intentionally files false or exaggerated claims against another party to gain a competitive edge during litigation or to punish the other party in retaliation. Our law firm can assist in defending your rights against a false claim of domestic violence.
