Domestic Violence

Dealing With the Family Law and
Criminal Law Issues of Domestic Violence

According to statistics compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the United States in 2006, the deaths of more than 50,000 people were directly attributable to domestic violence.

The reality of violence is that often it is not a problem that fixes itself. It may escalate. And as the violence escalates, so does a victim's isolation and vulnerability.

If You Have Been Accused of Domestic Violence ...

A single incident of domestic violence or even one false allegation of spousal or child abuse can change your life in profound and devastating ways. At Wexell Milman, we help clients in Northern Virginia deal with the various family, criminal law and collateral consequences associated with domestic violence, including:

  • The issuing of preliminary orders of protection (restraining orders)
  • The issuing of permanent protective orders
  • The potential loss of child custody and visitation rights
  • The possibility of deportation and removal (we can put you in touch with immigration attorneys whom we have worked with in the past or work with your existing immigration attorney)
