Divorce, Domestic Violence And Restraining Orders

Legal Assistance Regarding Domestic Violence In Northwest Indiana

While many divorce cases are contentious due to disputes over finances or infidelity, some issues may stem from allegations, signs or acts of domestic violence. A Child In Need Of Services (CHINS) proceeding before the Department of Child Services may also arise if your child arrives at school with a bruise.

In Indiana, judges are generally receptive to requests for protective orders (restraining orders), and teachers are on the lookout for signs of violence against children. These issues must be addressed quickly, whether you are charged with a crime of domestic violence or you need to obtain a restraining order to protect yourself or your family during a family law dispute.
