Domestic Violence

If You are a Victim of Domestic Violence in Northern Virginia, You are Not Alone

Domestic violence (sometimes called “family abuse”) affects many families in the United States. The reality of domestic violence is that it is not a problem that often fixes itself. It may escalate. And as the violence escalates, so does a victim’s isolation and vulnerability.

Individuals exposed to domestic violence need help to be safe, to keep their children safe, and to break the cycle of domestic violence in Northern Virginia. The family lawyers at Wexell Milman represent those individuals, whether in protective order hearings or by pursuing a fault-based divorce, in order to ensure personal and financial security.

What to do if You Have Been Accused of Domestic Violence in Northern Virginia

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. We help clients in Northern Virginia deal with the various family law, criminal law, and collateral consequences associated with domestic violence, including:

  • The defense 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)
  • The possibility of criminal charges (although family law is our primary focus, we also provide experienced, effective criminal defense representation in spousal assault and battery cases involving a family or household member)
