Jacksonville Domestic Violence Lawyer

Domestic Abuse Protection in Florida

If you are suffering a domestic violence issue, it is essential to involve a strong and aggressive lawyer. If you or your children are being abused by your spouse or a domestic partner, the situation calls for legal assistance. Charles E. Willmott, P.A. is a firm that focuses on providing the protection individuals need during this difficult time.

If you are facing a domestic abuse issue that needs to be addressed, do not hesitate to call my firm. I will do everything I can to use my legal knowledge to protect victims of physical abuse. The court has the ability to issue an emergency domestic violence injunction that can prohibit you spouse from making contact with you. The purpose of this injunction is to avoid further occurrences of abuse while you take further legal action. I make it a priority to also offer caring and compassionate counsel to my clients who have been victims of domestic violence.

As a Jacksonville family lawyer, I can be a valuable asset to your situation. An injunction is only a temporary protection prior to enacting a divorce. My office can help you file an injunction that can provide you with the support you need during this time. I can also connect you with an arrangement of agencies that can further assist you throughout this time. I am a marital and family law expert who can help arrange substance abuse counseling, psychological evaluations, and anger management classes by the Court if necessary for you and your spouse.

How Can Domestic Violence Affect My Divorce?

The state of Florida is a no-fault state, meaning when you file for a divorce, you do not have to provide your spouse's wrongdoing. However, by providing a fault such as abuse, could help in determining equitable, or fair, distribution.

If domestic violence is a reality for you, seek protection through a court order to keep your spouse away from causing further harm to you. With a Protection from Abuse order, your spouse may not legally get in contact with you. If the order is violated they could face possible jail time.

With a seasoned Jacksonville family law attorney by your side, they can help ensure you obtain the results you deserve while maintaining protection for you and your family.

Has an Injunction Been Filed Against You?

Domestic violence does not always have to involve actual physical violence but can involve fear or a threat of abuse. If a false domestic violence injunction has been filed against you, it is important to contact my office immediately. I may be able to help you through your domestic violence hearing and even represent you in court. If you have been accused of domestic violence, there is a lot at stake at this time. Your reputation, ability to secure work and housing opportunities may all be affected if you are convicted of domestic violence.

A judge's ruling can sometimes require you to leave your home, prevent you from visiting your children and demand that you take domestic violence classes. If you have been falsely accused, it is important not to take any chances. As an experienced family law attorney, I am prepared to help you through this difficult situation. Even though you have been accused of violence, you are still entitled to certain rights at this time. I will do everything I can to protect those rights in court for my clients.

Whether you are a victim of domestic violence or have been falsely accused of physical abuse, Charles E. Willmott, P.A. is ready to provide the legal support you need.
