In many relationships domestic violence unfortunately becomes an issue, and the attorneys at Johnson Law have zero tolerance for legitimate acts domestic violence. Domestic Violence can include things such as stalking, physical abuse, verbal abuse and emotional abuse.

One Can Find Relief From Domestic Violence

Under Chapter 50-B of the North Carolina General Statutes, one can find relief from domestic violence by filing a Complaint and obtaining a protective order. Johnson Law has helped many victims of domestic violence. As part of an order for protection, a party may receive many things including: protection from the abuser for 1 year, possession of the home, temporary custody of the children, temporary child support, temporary spousal support, and attorney fees.

Unfortunately, some parties file protective orders for an improper purpose, such as to gain an advantage in a domestic case or merely for spite. When this happens, it is important that you defend these actions as aggressively as possible.

You Can Lose Many Things If A Domestic Violence

You can lose many things if a domestic violence protective order is entered against you, which can include: limited time with your children, loss of income, confiscation of your firearms, and loss of other rights. Johnson Law’s attorneys are skilled and successful at aggressively defending against these frivolous actions. Further, our firm often times seeks sanctions against the party filing the frivolous action.
