Domestic Violence Lawyer – What Are The Laws in Colorado?

Wednesday, 26 January 2011

blog-logoNo one ever expects to hurt the ones they love, but often there are underlying issues that have not been addressed properly.  Combine these with the responsibilities of family, financial burdens, job stress and other factors, and a marital squabble can become physically violent.  This type of behavior should never be acceptable in any family or loving relationship.  If you are dealing with any type of domestic abuse, a Colorado domestic violence lawyer can get you the legal help you need.  An attorney can get you an immediate restraining order and a safe place to stay. 

With foreclosures and repossessions on the rise, and so many people out of work, Colorado domestic violence lawyers have seen an uptick in domestic violence reporting. Frequently, when stress in a marriage increases and causes a husband and wife shouting match to erupt, the situation can escalate into shoving and other physical struggles, and even serious injury.  When this occurs, or if the situation gets out of control, one party may dial 911. 

Domestic Violence Law in Colorado have made it mandatory for police officers to do a number of things when a person reports domestic abuse.  First, they must determine if there is “probable cause” to believe a crime has been committed.  If so, they are obligated to arrest the suspected perpetrator.  From there, whether a domestic violence charge is filed by the other party or not, the arrest will result in a mandatory protection order against the person being charged.  If this is happening to you or someone you love, you should start looking for an experienced domestic violence lawyer.
