Domestic Violence and Injunctions
Domestic violence occurs when a spouse, parent, or other family members is and will be violent toward another. A party is in fear of harm or imminent harm from someone they share or have shared a home with. Other forms of violence include stalking, repeat violence, and romantic or dating violence.

If you are fearful for your personal safety or that of your loved ones, you may need to file for a restraining order for personal protection. If you have been physically hurt, stalked, bullied or believe you, your child or loved one will be hurt or in danger of imminent bodily harm, the attorneys at the Law Office of Sheena Benjamin-Wise will help you to seek protection for yourself and the children. With our help, the Court will hear what happened that makes you fear for your safety at a hearing on your Petition for Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence (restraining order).
However, if you believe you have been wrongfully accused of causing fear to others, the attorneys will review the circumstances and advise you of your legal rights to defend your position.
