Domestic violence is a serious problem. It claims the lives of thousands of men and women every year and destroys countless more families. Historically, men were commonly viewed as perpetrators and women as victims. However, statistics now indicate that an increasing number of women are now being charged with domestic abuse every year.
It is a far-reaching problem that has negative effects on everyone involved. At Holstrom, Block & Parke, APLC, we know how important it is to handle domestic violence issues with urgency. Our attorneys offer a full range of services, including filing for immediate temporary restraining orders and working with authorities to enforce law enforcement emergency protective orders.

Domestic violence does not have to involve physical or sexual abuse. In fact, it comes in many forms, including:
Additionally, the abuse does not have to occur within the context of a husband-wife or boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. Grandparents and other relatives can be domestic abusers. The same goes for roommates, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and casual acquaintances too. In fact, you don’t even have to live under the same roof as your abuser in order to be a victim of domestic violence. Furthermore, domestic violence is not necessarily an everyday or every week occurrence. It can be frequent or sporadic. Periods of stress may trigger an attack, or there may be no apparent reason for it at all.
The one thing to remember is that regardless of whether it’s currently affecting you or not, domestic violence does not resolve itself. Over time, it will almost always escalate.
The Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Order (DVTRO) is a court order that prohibits a person from engaging in particular acts toward a specific person or persons, or from even being in certain places. DVTROs are most commonly issued after an “ex parte application” is filed for an emergency hearing with the court. When a DVTRO becomes permanent, it becomes a DVRO.
We can also provide aggressive legal representation that helps innocent people avoid the consequences of being falsely accused of domestic violence. False allegations are unfortunately a frequent ploy employed to gain the upper hand in custody or property division cases, and our lawyers can fight to protect your rights, freedom, and reputation.
