Arizona Attorney Offering Legal Counsel on Domestic Abuse
Domestic violence is one of the most emotional issues to deal with in the legal system. People who have been abused may be living in fear of their abusers, while people who have been accused may be facing serious consequences.
I'm domestic violence attorney Kyle Scoresby, and with the help of my staff at Scoresby Family Law, I represent clients in protective order hearings and counsel them on the family law implications of domestic violence accusations. With more than 20 years of experience representing clients in Scottsdale, Mesa and other communities throughout Arizona, I know how to approach these cases and act quickly to meet the needs of my clients.
Whether you have been the victim of domestic violence or have been wrongly accused of abusing someone in your household, contact my office to set up a consultation to discuss your options.
Representing Clients on Either Side of a Protective Order Hearing
In Arizona, if you or your children have been assaulted or otherwise physically abused by your spouse or someone else in your household, you can pursue an order of protection to keep that person away from you and your home.
The courts can order temporary protective orders immediately, but an accused person has the right to a hearing, represented by a lawyer, to determine whether the protective order should remain in place.
I represent clients who are seeking protective orders — also known as restraining orders — to protect themselves from domestic violence. I also help people who have been accused of domestic violence get fair hearings and protect their rights.
Addressing Accusations of Domestic Violence in Family Law Cases
Issues of domestic violence often come up during divorce and family law cases. Allegations of domestic violence, if proven, can have a serious impact on the outcome of a family law case, particularly in the area of child custody (now, legal decision making).
If you have been abused, I can help you strategize to protect yourself physically while moving forward with your family law case. If you have been accused of abuse, I can help you understand your options to responding to those accusations.
