Every relationship has good days and bad days, but the law recognizes that physical violence is never an appropriate response to disagreements between family members and romantic partners, any more than assault is appropriate between strangers. At the same time, if you are accused of domestic violence you have the right to strong and effective representation to help ensure your rights are protected.
If you have been attacked or fear that violence is imminent, you should call 911. Once your immediate safety is assured, it is time to think about how to prevent acts or threats of violence in the future. North Carolina's legal system can be used to put space between family members so that all parties remain safe while emotions like anger have time to dissipate.
Roupas Law Firm, PLLC, works to keep our clients safe and protect their rights and help them make whatever changes are necessary to keep their family safe and secure.
If an act of domestic abuse has already occurred, or if you fear that one may occur soon, it is never too early to speak with an experienced attorney to consider your legal options. We can help you obtain a restraining order as quickly as the legal system is able to handle — and sometimes even a single day can make the difference between staying safe and suffering an attack.
If you have children, we can also help modify custody arrangements as necessary. Perhaps the children face the risk of violence themselves, or one parent simply wants them far away when the other parent is acting aggressively. An emergency custody order can help keep your children safe, and we can help you obtain custody orders, protective orders and other court orders very quickly.
Roupas Law Firm, PLLC, in Greensboro, knows how to handle even the most contentious of legal issues. We also provide representation in Rockingham, Randolph, Guilford, Forsyth and Alamance counties, as well as all of North Carolina.
