Unfortunately, we often receive calls from potential clients who have been victims of domestic violence (family violence) or want a restraining order against a spouse or former spouse. This relief can often be obtained through the State Courts of Georgia. “Family violence” refers to the occurrence of a felony or the commission of battery, simple assault, assault, stalking, criminal damage to property, unlawful restraint, burglary of dwelling, or between past or present spouses, parents of the same child, parents and children, stepparents and stepchildren, foster parents and adopted children, or others who live or once lived in the same house.

If you have been a victim of domestic violence please remember that there are resources available to victims of family violence. In addition, when appropriate, you should consider getting a temporary restraining order for your protection and the protection of your family.
