Domestic Violence Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Panama City Beach Domestic Violence Lawyers

Compassionate Family Lawyers Here to Protect You

If you are a victim of domestic violence and considering a divorce, our Panama City Beach family law attorneys can help you secure a restraining order against your attacker to protect your physical and emotional wellbeing. Even if you still live with your estranged spouse, once the divorce process is initiated, a domestic violence injunction will order them to leave the family home.

Domestic Violence Injunctions to Protect You

Victims Need Protection
If you are planning to leave an abusive relationship or if you have already, you may be worrying about your safety, and the safety of any children you have. Our attorneys at The Virga Law Firm, P.A. are here to help. We can ask the court for a temporary restraining order until a hearing is set. We will help you go over all the evidence and be at your side through the process of confronting your abuser in court. Domestic violence injunctions in Florida serve the purpose of protecting our clients from their abusers. Let us put our experience to good use for you.

A restraining order will prevent your estranged spouse from doing the following:

  • Making contact with you either at your home or workplace
  • Stalking
  • Harassment

Protection Against False Allegations of Domestic Abuse
All accusations of domestic violence deserve to be taken seriously, and yet, there are instances of false allegations of abuse, especially in the case of divorce among particularly bitter or vindictive ex-spouses. We can help challenge the charges brought against you and clear your name from the stain of a domestic violence accusation, which could jeopardize your child custody rights. We can also help you learn the terms of compliance of a restraining order, should you be served with one.
