The Protection You Need After Suffering Abuse

Domestic violence is serious and pervasive. The team at the Law Offices Of Michael P. McGuire LLC in Freehold is committed to providing the legal protection and support you and your family need. We have an established temporary restraining order (TRO) practice to help people in abusive relationships.

Which Behaviors Are Abuse?

Not everyone understands the scope that abuse involves. Abuse is typically when one person has power over the other person in a relationship. Power can be financial, physical or psychological. Many behaviors and actions are abusive. Here are a few of the more common:

  • Punching, slapping, physically restraining
  • Throwing or breaking items to threaten or intimidate
  • Physically hurting or threatening to hurt another person, child or pet
  • Verbal threats or humiliation
  • Withholding food or care
  • Manipulation, harassment or stalking

Our team understands how to effectively deal with an abuser to end the contact and the abuse. We can provide guidance, support and representation for you if you have suffered or are in fear of imminent domestic violence. Most often, the best first step is to obtain a temporary restraining order (TRO).

Who Can Be An Abuser?

Again, when people think of an abuser, they typically picture a spouse or domestic partner. While this is usually the case, other members of a household can be abusers and can have a TRO filed against them. These people include romantic (and same-sex) partners, former intimate partners, siblings, relatives and roommates. You do not have to live in a constant state of fear. As attorneys who work in family law issues, we can help.
