Greensboro Domestic Violence Lawyer and Family Law SpecialistDomestic violence when it is truly violent is a scourge in our society that is worth fighting to protect innocent lives. When a boyfriend, girlfriend, husband or wife inflicts threats and attacks on a significant other, legal protection for the victim is appropriate. Although it may not be difficult to obtain a temporary restraining order if you are the victim of domestic violence, eventually you will have to present your case in a courtroom if you want the order to stay in place. This requires knowledge of the rules of evidence as well as the legal standards that are necessary for a judge to rule in your favor. If the person who has threatened, assaulted, or harrassed you comes to court with a lawyer and you don’t, then you will be at a serious disadvantage.That’s why you should hire a lawyer who has in depth knowledge of domestic violence laws and is familiar with the arguments on both sides.It’s also true that not all domestic violence allegations are legitimate. All too often, however, separating, divorcing or divorced individuals use the cry of "domestic violence" as a tool for punishing another person in a relationship gone sour. When a mother calls the police to accuse a father of domestic violence (or vice versa), police will nearly always arrest someone first and ask questions later. Even if the accuser recants, it is usually too late to stop the involvement of the law in what was previously a private dispute. The result of this type of dynamic is that many people named in domestic violence accusations are unable to return to their own homes or see their own children, even before a judge has determined whether allegations were well founded. If you are a defendant in a domestic violence case, it is critical that you have a lawyer who is experienced in domestic violence laws and can effectively present your defense.Samuel Spagnola Is An Experienced Domestic Violence AttorneyAs a dedicated lawyer practicing family law in the Greensboro area, I have seen my fair share of domestic violence cases — and exaggerated claims of abuse.
