Domestic Violence And Neglect

Unfortunately, many family law and divorce issues are associated with safety concerns, specifically related to domestic violence and neglect.

At The Law Office of Thomas Wilson PC, we prioritize our clients' safety and the protection of their rights. Beyond this, we aim to find reasonable ways to resolve conflicts and preserve familial relationships when possible. We have experience in representing clients who have been accused of domestic violence as well as those who have been the victim of domestic violence.

Our family law practice is led by attorney whose experience in this specific area of law includes participation in the University of Arizona victims of domestic violence clinic. There he provides legal advice to individuals who are struggling with these issues and do not know how to proceed.

He offers a confidential and judgment-free attorney-client relationship, where clients can speak openly about allegations of domestic violence.

What Constitutes Domestic Violence In Arizona?

The definition of domestic violence varies, and physical harm does not necessarily have to be involved. It can be defined by:

  • Physical abuse, assault and injury
  • Emotional abuse
  • Displaying a weapon with an intent to intimidate or harm
  • Threats of physical violence
  • Stalking or engaging in threatening communications
  • Unlawful imprisonment
  • Damaging another person's property

Many accusations arise out of family arguments that have gotten out of hand. When the police are called, they are obligated to separate the parties and a temporary restraining order may be placed against an individual before proper legal proceedings take place. This is done in an effort to keep everyone safe, but it also sometimes unfairly places guilt against one party.

We work hard to uncover the truth behind domestic violence and neglect issues while keeping our clients safe. Learn more about how we can help by contacting an experienced lawyer at our office in Tucson, Arizona. We can be reached online or by telephone at 520-624-2728.
