Domestic violence can victimize anyone, regardless of gender or income. When domestic violence occurs, the most important and immediate thing is to make certain it stops before someone is seriously injured or worse. If you or someone you know has been the victim of domestic violence, or if you believe you are in imminent danger of domestic violence, Duncan Trial & Family Law can help.

Once you have contacted Duncan Trial & Family Law, the first thing we do is prepare a safety plan taking into consideration all of your circumstances. The next immediate step is typically to pursue a temporary injunction for protection from domestic violence that is designed to protect you until you and the other party can appear in court. Depending upon the circumstances, Duncan Trial & Family Law can typically arrange for you to file for an emergency temporary injunction on the very same day you contact us.

IMPORTANT - you do not have to wait until you are actually harmed to file for an emergency temporary injunction against domestic violence. If you have been threatened, or have a reasonable belief that you will be the victim of domestic violence, you can seek an injunction of protection against that domestic violence, even if it has not yet actually occurred.

The sooner you speak with Duncan Trial & Family Law, the sooner we can help seek protection for you. Duncan Trial & Family Law can act quickly to help you obtain an emergency temporary injunction and then work with you to secure permanent protection from violence. If you need a place to stay that is away from your abusive spouse or partner, we can also direct you to several local, trustworthy organizations that can provide the housing and counsel that you need. 

Unfortunately, on rare occasions, some individuals falsely accuse a spouse or partner of domestic violence in the hope that this will result in an unfair advantage in a divorce or custody proceeding. Duncan Trial & Family Law takes domestic violence seriously – we believe that domestic violence is intolerable, and that false accusations of such violence also should not be tolerated. If you believe you have been falsely accused, Duncan Trial & Family Law may be able to help you.
