Domestic violence may be defined as physical, sexual, economic and/or psychological abuse to control and maintain control over an intimate partner. Under Louisiana law, there are different types of protective orders that can be issued based on the threat of physical or sexual abuse or an act of violence. In Family Law, a restraining order is a court order that prohibits your spouse or intimate partner from abusing, threatening, harassing or stalking you amongst other legal remedies. I help clients obtain a restraining order or defend against a wrongfully issued restraining order.
