Domestic Violence Help

Houston
Domestic Violence Lawyer

If you have been affected by domestic violence or charges of child
abuse
, it is important to seek legal counsel right away. Protect
yourself and to learn about your rights. At my law office,Frank E. Mann,
Attorney and Counselor at Law, I represent both men and women in
domestic violence matters. Providing effective and practical solutions
to family law problems since 1984, I use my experience to provide
clients with sound advice about their options in any domestic violence
matter.

An
lawyer who can advise you about your options

To learn more about the provisions of Texas domestic violence laws,
contact my Houston office. If you are facing a protective order for
domestic violence or need to remove yourself from an abusive situation, I
can represent you so that your safety and your rights are preserved. At
the law office of Frank E. Mann, I advise clients about their options,
provide assistance with paperwork, and offer representation at hearings.

Emergency
and temporary orders

The law offers people experiencing domestic violence or assault three
avenues: emergency orders, protective orders, and restraining orders.

Emergency orders can be imposed by a family law judge. Temporary
restraining orders, or ex-parte orders, are common in divorce actions.
They offer immediate protection against an abuser. They also maintain
the status quo, preventing the other party from emptyingbank accounts,
purchasing or selling assets, or running up credit card bills.

Permanent
protective orders

A permanent protective order prevents future assaults, making it
illegal for the abuser to be near the other party. Violations of this
order can be criminal behavior, with the violator subject to arrest. In
order to obtain a permanent protective order, victims must attend a
hearing at which the abuser is present. These orders are awarded for up
to two years, and can be renewed.

Domestic
violence can affect the outcome of a divorce

I complete all needed paperwork and attend hearings for clients who
need protection from an abuser. I also represent people who are subject
to restraining orders and injunctions or have been charged with
violating such orders. The existence of temporary or permanent
protective orders can influence the courts’ final determination in
divorce or child support actions, increasing or decreasing the amount of
child support or adding to the complexity of visitation plans.

available to you, contact Frank E. Mann, Attorney and Counselor at Law.
