What Is Domestic Violence?

North Carolina law defines domestic abuse as attempting to cause or intentionally causing bodily injury. Domestic violence can also involve placing a person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury or harassment that causes substantial emotional distress.

Additionally, these acts must be perpetrated by someone who meets a certain relationship standard, such as:

  • A current or former spouse
  • Persons of the opposite sex who live or have lived together
  • People who have a child in common who are not married or are divorced
  • Persons who are current or former household members
  • Persons of the opposite sex who are in or have been dating

If you are in any of these situations and domestic violence has occurred, should seek legal protection right away. Our legal representative at Krusch Divorce Resolution has decades of experience and can provide you with the foresight and protection you deserve.

Obtaining a Protective Order

Our lawyer can help you file a complaint seeking a domestic violence protective order. In addition to filing your complaint, our attorney can also provide unbiased advice regarding your chances of obtaining a protective order.

To obtain a protective order:

  • You will need to appear before a judge and request an emergency order
  • Within 10 days of filing a complaint, a hearing will be held in which both parties will testify
  • Following the hearing, the court will decide whether to issue an order of protection

Do I Need an Attorney for the Hearing?

If you are the person seeking a domestic violence protective order, it is helpful to have an attorney who can assist you to ensure that you provide all of the relevant information to the judge and frame the issues in the correct context.

Our lawyer will be by your side every step of the way so you do not have to go through this process alone. We know what is at stake, and we will take appropriate legal measures to ensure your safety.

Accusations of Domestic Violence

If you are the person against whom the order of protection is sought (the Defendant), it is helpful to have an attorney who can assist you in defending against the accusations made against you.

Protective orders can:

  • Damage your reputation
  • Negatively impact your income
  • Affect your standing in a divorce
  • Affect your child custody or child support agreement

Our attorney understands that family disputes, especially in the context of a divorce, can sometimes result in false allegations of spousal abuse for the purpose of gaining bargaining power. Our Charlotte domestic violence attorney will vigorously defend you in such a situation

  • Alan is a sophisticated professional.

    “Alan is a sophisticated professional. Wow, did I say wow?!!!! He will tell you up front EXACTLY what will happen with your case. Also known as the truth, which (by the way you probably already know.) My advice is to just let him do his job -that he is more than capable of doing. Don't ask too many questions or get yourself worked up. Alan will tell you in advance almost the exact outcome of your case to a t. In the end you can feel good about him as a human being because he won't resort to less than favorable behaviour. And by that I mean other attorneys who have to use immature tactics to make up for what they lack as men. Although it is quite entertaining to watch some of them!!!Hahahahaha!!!!! Submitted by JULIE MEDLIN, who JUST WON HER CASE!!!!!!!!! Thank you ALAN KRUSCH!”
