Domestic Violence

At The Law Offices of Christy L. Hertz, P.A., we represent victims of domestic violence and those wrongfully accused of domestic violence. Domestic violence exists when a family or household member (which is defined as spouses, former spouses, persons related by blood or marriage, persons who are presently residing together as if a family or who have resided together in the past as if a family, and persons who are parents of a child in common regardless of whether they have been married) has either been the victim of domestic violence (which is defined as any assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another family or household member ) or when a family or household member has reasonable cause to believe he or she is in imminent danger of becoming the victim of any act of domestic violence. If you are a victim of domestic violence or emotional abuse, we can help you obtain a permanent injunction for protection against domestic violence.

Perhaps you have been falsely accused of committing domestic violence as a strategy for a divorce or other family law matter, which you are involved in. If an injunction has been filed against you, we can help you defend the injunction so that you do not have to face a potentially permanent restraining order that may have employment or other serious implications for you.
