Domestic Violence and Restraining Orders

The Colorado courts take domestic violence and restraining orders very seriously. Domestic violence charges or a civil restraining order can have a substantial impact on the outcome of your divorce or child custody case. At Leah Bishop, L.L.C., we represent clients in Fort Collins and throughout Colorado who have been accused of domestic violence or had a restraining order served against them as well as victims of domestic violence.

Representing Clients Charged With Domestic Violence and Restraining Orders

During a divorce or other family dispute, tempers flare and occasionally arguments can get out of control. If you have been charged with domestic violence or your spouse has obtained a restraining order against you, this could affect your ability to live in your home, see or spend time with your children or make decisions about your children’s lives. These charges could also affect your parenting time and decision-making abilities in the future.

Additionally, you may be facing misdemeanor charges, and the courts may require that you attend domestic violence counseling. You may also be subject to a restraining order, which prohibits you from going within 100 yards of the victim or your children, and you will not be allowed to own or possess a firearm. If you violate the restraining order, you will be charged with another act of domestic violence and could face jail time.

Our Fort Collins domestic violence attorneys have years of experience representing clients who have been charged with domestic violence. We will work diligently to protect your rights and your freedom in both your criminal and family law cases.

Representing Victims of Domestic Violence

If you have been the victim of domestic violence or you believe that you or your children are in danger, you can obtain a temporary restraining order (TRO). The TRO will prevent your abuser from coming near you or your children or from contacting you. A hearing will be held to determine whether a permanent restraining order should be filed. Our lawyers will vigorously fight for your rights and help you protect yourself from abuse.
