Domestic Violence in Colorado
Colorado Orders of Protection
If you or someone you care about is the victim of domestic violence, child abuse or any other abuse, taking legal action can help protect against further threats or injuries. Our legal team at Feldmann Nagel Margulis will act immediately to put in place a Civil Protection Order. While this legal action cannot ensure that an abusive individual does not violate the order, it does give law enforcement the authority to take the person into custody if he or she does. This legal pressure can control a dangerous situation and protect you from harm from an abusive spouse or domestic partner.
Restraining Orders and Domestic Violence
Domestic violence includes any repeated, abusive action intended to gain or maintain control or power over another individual. Domestic violence and abuse may be hard to identify – such as repeated criticism or name calling. In some cases, abuse is inflicted physically. Physical abusers may inflict physical harm such as biting, kicking, slapping, or choking. Sometimes, domestic violence escalates to a level that places victims in imminent danger –under these circumstances, the victim should take legal action to protect himself or herself against further abuse.
