Attorneys in Bowie & Crofton, Maryland

Protecting You and Your Children Against Domestic Violence

At the Law Office of Kari Holm Fawcett, we understand the emotional, psychological, and physical devastation of domestic assault. We also understand that many women, men, and children can suffer post-traumatic stress and Battered Spouse Syndrome, both of which can cause them to believe they are guilty or responsible for the abuse they have suffered.

You need to realize that you are not responsible for your spouse’s actions. You deserve to be free from the threat of harm from your significant other or spouse.

Our law firm can help protect you and your children from domestic violence. We have over 25 years of experience helping clients rebuild their lives free from harm.

  • Anger management courses

  • Child custody and visitation

  • Wage garnishment

  • Emergency family maintenance

Comprehensive Legal Approach

Domestic violence can tear families apart. We can provide you with resources and legal strategies to protect you and your children. As domestic violence lawyers, we realize the best way to help you is through strong preparation and advocacy.

We will evaluate your situation from every angle to help determine immediate and effective solutions. We can begin gathering appropriate documentation to prove domestic abuse as grounds for divorce, and may establish a precedent for child custody arrangements.

Proving domestic violence is difficult, as it usually occurs behind closed doors. To successfully prove abuse without witnesses who can share their personal observations, we will need to present effective and appropriate evidentiary materials, including medical records, X-rays, and photos of injuries.

Immediate Protection — Immediate Relief

Our practice understands that your domestic violence situation may place you and your children in immediate danger. You do not have the luxury of time. We can protect you from the moment you walk into our office. Depending on the level of danger or threat, we can help you and your children:

  • Go underground — or in hiding

  • Get into a safe haven, such as A House of Ruth

  • Sweep your car for GPS trackers

  • Register at a hotel
