Marietta Domestic Violence Lawyer
Domestic abuse is the violence or threat of violence between members of the same household. This abuse can either be physical in nature, emotional in nature or both. It is not uncommon for the victim to feel ashamed about the abusive nature of the relationship and refuse to report it even if that might mean an end to the violence.
We encourage anyone in an abusive relationship — women or men — to report the violence to law enforcement and seriously consider removing yourself from the relationship. If you are married, contact a knowledgeable Marietta domestic violence attorney at our office.
For decades, the lawyer at G. Cleveland Payne III P.C. has helped people escape from abusive marriages through divorce. Victims of domestic violence do not always realize that they have the power to do something about it. The law provides protections and remedies. Victims of physical violence can become blind to their rights and protections and refuse to even attempt to make a change. Contact our office with any questions you might have, and we can schedule a confidential consultation to discuss your situation.
Cobb County Protective Order Attorney
There are legal avenues available for immediate relief under the Georgia Family Violence Act. In the past, victims could seek a restraining order. As the statutes have changed, you can now seek a permanent protective order (PPO) or a temporary protective order (TPO), which have replaced restraining orders for such circumstances.
When a family violence action is initiated, the court has the authority to address issues of temporary child support, alimony, possession and use of property, visitation and to enforce anger management counseling. Let us help you remove yourself from this abusive relationship and build a more stable future.
