Litigating Restraining Orders

Litigating Restraining Orders

Helping Individuals and Families in Domestic Violence Situations in Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Indiana

When you or your family has been victimized by domestic violence, how do you ensure that you and your children will be safe in the future and that the cycle of violence will end? When you are unable to enter your home or visit your children due to inflated or false domestic violence charges, who can help protect your rights by presenting a true, well-researched, and supported case to a judge in your domestic violence hearing? The attorneys at Stange Law Firm, PC, are dedicated to assisting clients with domestic relations matters. We have helped numerous clients obtain and defend against temporary protective orders (also known as restraining orders, temporary restraining orders, or injunctions). Regardless of which “side” of a temporary restraining order dispute you are on, we can advocate for your rights by:
  • Meeting with you to discuss your concerns and document the event
  • Interviewing witnesses and taking statements
  • Visiting with police and obtaining police reports
  • Examining records from the Division of Family Services and other agencies

Compassionate Help for Domestic Violence Victims

Circumstances vary from person to person in domestic violence situations. Has your spouse denied you access to your bank accounts or terminated your credit card(s)? Is your spouse, partner, or former spouse controlling and emotionally abusive? We help victims of violence by helping them obtain temporary restraining orders and the safety they can provide.

Aggressive Help When Temporary Restraining Orders and Domestic Violence Charges Are Misused

We also help people when their spouses or partners misuse domestic violence charges to gain an advantage during divorce proceedings. Have you been unfairly accused of domestic violence and now face additional challenges in an alimony, child support, child custody, or visitation dispute? We can gather and present the proper facts so that the court understands your situation and rules accordingly.
We have a legal summary for more information regarding restraining orders: Restraining Orders, Protective Orders, and Injunctive Relief.

Estranged Children
Opposite of parental alienation, in some cases, the conduct of a parent might be so extreme that the children become realistically estranged from their parent. It's important to have an attorney who understands realistic estrangement and how it can often be overlooked.
Parental Abduction
Parental abduction is a crisis type situation where one of the parents flees with the children in violation of a court order or to deprive the other parent of any custody time. It is critical to act fast and have an attorney in your corner if this is the case.
Drug Tests
Drug use can be significant problem in child custody cases. In certain cases, a parent might be a drug or alcohol abuser. It is vital to have an attorney who understands this issue and can help obtain an order for a drug or alcohol test.
Parent Coordinators
While it is not allowed by statute in Missouri or Illinois except by agreement, in some extreme cases, the parties might agree to have a parent coordinator help resolve legal custody disputes between parents who cannot co-parent. At Stange Law Firm, PC, we can help you explore this option as it might help minimize the need for costly litigation.
Sexual Abuse Allegations
In some child custody cases, sexual abuse allegations can arise. In some instances, the allegations regrettably turn out to be true. In other cases, the allegations are false and/or brought maliciously. No matter the situation, it is critical that you have counsel in your corner if sexual abuse allegations are part of your child custody matter.
