Domestic Violence & Family Law

Compassionate Support from a Colorado Family Law Lawyer

Domestic violence has serious consequences beyond criminal charges. There may be implications for divorcing or separating spouses and parents and impacts on parenting time and decision making for children. It is important to have an experienced legal team on your side to help understand the charge and defend your rights.

Domestic violence is defined as more than just physical violence between spouses. In Colorado, domestic violence can include a threat of violence, stalking, harassment, or another crime if the crime was used to coerce, control, punish, intimidate, or seek revenge against someone with whom the accused is, or has been, involved in an intimate relationship.

An intimate relationship is a relationship between:

  • Spouses
  • Former spouses
  • Past or present unmarried couples
  • Persons who are both the parents of the same child

How Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. Can Help

Our Colorado domestic violence attorneys at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. have vast experience in family law and have dealt with countless domestic violence cases and allegations.

When Can an Arrest Take Place?

Colorado law states that when an officer has probable cause to believe an act of domestic violence occurred, the officer must arrest the suspect. Once arrested for domestic violence, a restraining order is entered-meaning you cannot have contact with the victim, and possibly not with your children, for a court-ordered period of time.

Give us a call today to learn more about how we can assist you.
