The Compassionate Counsel And Support You Deserve When Faced With Domestic Violence Issues

At Smith, Dickey & Dempster P.A., we routinely work with individuals and families in our local communities who are going through some of the most challenging moments of their lives. For those faced with divorce and other family law matters, there are numerous emotional components that factor into the legal decisions that need to be address.

There Are Two Sides To Every Domestic Violence Matter

Domestic violence matters are a unique area of the law where criminal and family law interests overlap. In some cases, accusations of violence may precede a divorce. In others, the stress of a separation contributes to an outburst. Regardless of the circumstance — whether you face accusations or are the victim of a violent act — it's important to take action and protect yourself with representation from experienced attorneys.

Although most people associate domestic violence matters with married couples or couples who share a residence, that is not always the case. Below are some other types of relationships that fall under the purview of domestic violence:

  • Current or former spouses
  • Grandparents
  • A person who is the other parent of your child
  • A partner of the opposite sex
  • Current or former boyfriend or girlfriend
  • Another member of the household

With years of experience handling criminal and civil cases, our lawyers understand the delicate nature of domestic violence matters. Not only can accusation affect your divorce proceedings, it can have serious professional consequences, particularly if you are in the military (we regularly represent military personnel stationed at Fort Bragg).

We have helped clients secure protective orders, as well as defended those who have been accused. In each case, we listen to our client's side of the story, gather evidence to determine the facts and build a strong case.
