Domestic Violence Defense Attorney
Being convicted of a violent crime can have very serious implications for a custody case that you may become involved in. Any evidence of a domestic violence crime within the last five years can result in a presumption against any legal or physical custody of a child or children being awarded to the accused. Visitation rights may still be awarded, if it is in the best interests of the child. Another consequence is the imposition of a stay away order, which could last for three to five years. Further, the court may impose a restriction on owning or transporting weapons.
Attorney Hammond has skillfully defended cases against restraining orders, as well as petitioning the court for restraining orders. He understands both sides of this issue to the benefit of his clients. If a party is reasonably feeling unsafe, there are many enforceable options available. Mr. Hammond will also investigate defenses, including self defense and whether the charges brought were false.
Call for an initial consultation and to answer any questions you may have. If you are charged with misdemeanor battery, then your attorney can make the first court appearance on your behalf. You will not have to miss work to attend the initial hearing.
