Assisting Clients in Domestic Abuse Matters
The attorneys at the law firm of Laraia & Whitty, P.C. in Wheaton, Illinois, recognize domestic violence as a criminal offense and can aggressively represent clients in DuPage County, Kane County, Cook County, Kendall County and Will County, including the Chicago metropolitan area, who may have suffered under the hands of domestic violence, have been falsely accused of domestic abuse, or are in dire need of filing for Orders of Protection to prevent the threat of violence.
Regardless of whether a couple is married, divorced, or is still going through the process of a divorce, an order of protection can still be filed if someone is involved in a domestically violent relationship or fears the threat of physical harm, either to themselves or to their children and family members.
Types of Provisions Offered Under Orders of Protection
Our family litigation attorneys can assist clients with online filing for Orders of Protection, or go to court with them to ensure the privacy and safety of their families.
Once an order of protection has been filed, a court can order the abuser to stay away from the victims’ family home, job, and school. It can also order an abuser to end all correspondence, such as sending gifts, making phone calls, leaving notes in the mail, or sending text messages or email.
At Laraia & Whitty, P.C. we have over 80 years of combined experience with some of the most difficult and complex family law situations regarding highly skilled representation in courtroom litigation cases. We are prepared to fight for the rights of our clients who may need legal protection against:
- Physical abuse
