Experienced Attorneys Who Understand The Delicate Issues Of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence can cause more than physical harm – it leaves a lasting impact on the entire family. At Jackman & Kasody PLLC, a Michigan divorce and family law firm, we are dedicated to providing effective, efficient representation that enables clients facing issues related to domestic violence and Personal Protection Orders to protect their families and their rights.
We represent clients throughout Oakland County and neighboring Wayne, Macomb, Livingston and Washtenaw counties.
Under Michigan law, domestic violence is defined as a pattern of learned behavior in which one person uses physical, sexual and/or emotional abuse to control a spouse, significant other or residence of the same household. While it often involves members of the same family, it is not simply a family matter – it is a crime, punishable by jail time and a monetary fine.
Personal Protection Orders
At Jackman & Kasody PLLC, our first concern is for the immediate safety and welfare of our clients and their families. We represent clients seeking to obtain a Personal Protection Order (PPO), which prohibits another person from having contact with you. Once a PPO is in place, that person can be arrested for violating the order.
Often, divorce, custody proceedings and other family law issues can arise in conjunction with a situation involving domestic violence. Our skilled compassionate lawyers guide clients through all elements of their case, providing the information they need to make informed decisions about their future and the steadfast representation necessary to protect their rights.
Defending The Wrongly Accused
Unfortunately, when couples are engaged in a divorce, separation or custody battle, one party may use allegations of domestic violence in an attempt to gain an advantage. Our attorneys work hard to protect individuals who have been unfairly accused, fighting beside them to protect their rights and to minimize the effect that these false charges have on their future and their ability to see their children.
