Allegations of domestic abuse are serious for both the perpetrator and victim. The victim fears for his or her safety. The perpetrator will probably face a hearing to determine whether an Order for Protection (OFP) should be issued. It is important to have a knowledgeable and concerned lawyer who can help you navigate the legal system and obtain the best possible outcome.
Whether you are a victim of domestic violence or have become the subject of an order for protection, we may be able to help you. At our Minnetonka, Minnesota law firm Beckman, Steen & Lungstrom, P.A., clients who must deal with domestic abuse allegations find our attorneys both sympathetic and determined to obtain the best results possible.
Examples of Domestic Violence Charges
We understand that domestic violence charges can affect the outcome of divorce and child custody disputes and could result in a criminal record for the perpetrator. Our goal is always to protect the safety and the future of our clients, whichever side they are on. Our lawyers represent clients in matters including:
- Threatening or inflicting physical harm, injury or assault
- Making terroristic threats
- Interfering with emergency calls
It’s important for people to know that they don’t need to be married to the abuser or victim to allege offenses such as these. People bring domestic abuse charges against parents, siblings, live-in partners, boyfriends or girlfriends, relatives and other people with whom there is an ongoing relationship. In addition to representing clients such as these in domestic abuse matters, we have acted for them in matters involving harassment.
