Perhaps you have been falsely accused of committing domestic violence as a strategy for a divorce or other family law matter in which you are involved. If an restraining order has been filed against you, The Law Office of Rajeh A. Saadeh, L.L.C., can help you defend the injunction so that you do not have to face a potentially permanent and final restraining order that may have employment or other serious implications for you. A record of domestic violence can limit your ability to get a job or a place to live, and harm your chances of being treated equally in child custody decisions.Domestic violence accusations can have consequences from the moment they are made. In fact, unlike with most other crimes, law enforcement officers often initiate formal investigations of domestic violence after one person makes a report of violence or threats, without requiring corroborating evidence or witnesses. A resentful spouse or angry significant other can make a single accusation that sparks an investigation that can turn your life upside down.
