Aggressive Representation for Domestic Violence Victims in Will County, Illinois
At the Davi Law Group, we serve clients in Joliet who are going through domestic violence issues. According to the Domestic Violence Act of 1986, domestic violence is abuse committed by a family or household member, such as a spouse, parent, or someone who has been involved in a dating relationship. The abuse is not always physical. Actions such as harassment, intimidation, willful deprivation, and exercising control over a person’s will are considered equally abusive.
We take the time to examine the evidence so that we can help our clients make sound decisions about domestic violence issues. We have experience helping those who are experiencing abuse, as well as those who are falsely accused of abuse. Our attorneys will listen to the circumstances of your matter and give you an honest assessment of how to proceed with your situation.
We help obtain orders of protection for clients who are:
- Abused by family or member of their household
- High-risk, disabled adults who experience abuse, neglect or exploitation by a family or household member
- Minor children or dependent adults in an abusive family or household environment
- Residents or employees of a facility where an abused family or household member lives
An order of protection may be filed by the person who is being abused or on behalf of an abused person. Such orders can be filed independently, in conjunction with a delinquency petition or a criminal prosecution, or along with a civil matter, such as divorce, or the establishment of parentage, child support, or guardianship.
