Compassionate Southern Indiana Domestic Violence Lawyers

Our family law attorneys have an in-depth understanding of the family law and domestic violence statutes in Kentucky. Domestic violence can be in the form of many different acts, including:

  • Assault

  • Battery

  • Marital rape / Sexual abuse

  • Acts causing fear of physical injury

  • Imminent threats / verbal abuse

  • Damage to pets or property

No further evidence beyond the testimony of the accuser is required to issue an order for protection. The accused is entitled to a hearing, where the order may be lifted or set for a longer period of time, depending on the evidence. Our domestic violence lawyers will work with you to protect your best interests and the interests of your children.

Protective Orders & Status Quo Orders

Emergency protection orders are important in family law cases. They can require a person to move out of their home, prevent the accused from contacting the victim at all and even restrict custody arrangements. We have dealt with numerous domestic violence cases for clients and can help you with any issue you may have relating to obtaining, modifying, or terminating an EPO, DVO, or PO (protective order).
