Domestic Violence

While it typically takes several weeks or months to have your case heard in court, some limited circumstances allow you to request immediate action from the court. Protections from abuse, harm to a child, or loss of marital assets are some examples of the type of emergency that courts will consider without a regularly scheduled court date. Call us for advice on pursuing or defending emergency cases.

Restraining Order

A domestic violence restraining order, sometimes called a “50-B”, is appropriate in a situation of abuse from someone with whom you have a close relationship. This can include a current or former spouse, significant other, roommate, someone with whom you share a child, or a relative through blood, marriage, or adoption. This does not apply to a child or grandchild under the age of 16. The court would require competent evidence of actual harm, an imminent threat, or fear of continued harassment. Contact us today if you are seeking protection and would like to know more about this legal remedy.

Civil No-contact Order

After a person is convicted of a sex offense or stalking, the victim of this crime can also seek a Civil No-Contact Order which can permanently prohibit any contact by that person with the victim. This order can be sought by the person who is the victim of a sex offense or by a competent adult in the state who is working on behalf of a victim who is either a minor child or an incompetent adult. If you are seeking protection from a convicted offender, call us today for a consultation.

Child Abuse

In the state of North Carolina, it is mandatory that any person or institution report to the Director of the Department of Social Services when they suspect any form of child abuse. The abuse can take the shape of physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, or behavior modification by way of cruel or inappropriate procedures. Neglect, abandonment, and refusal to provide necessary medical care can also cause serious damage and is considered with child abuse. Contact us for an advocate to aid and protect you in this legal process.
