Trusted Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence accusations can have an immediate impact on a person’s life.

If you have been accused of domestic violence in the state of North Carolina, you may face a temporary restraining order (referred to as a 50B protective order).

Understanding The 50B Protective Order

In North Carolina, the 50B protective order is a restraining order that is ordered after a complaint is filed by a plaintiff alleging physical abuse or imminent threat of physical abuse. It is valid for 10 days and can be extended in a subsequent hearing.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a woman to accuse her husband of domestic abuse or other family violence and seek a 50B restraining order for purposes of gaining the upper hand in divorce or child custody matters.

Getting An Advocate On Your Side

In order to protect your rights and defend yourself from spousal abuse allegations, it is important that you seek out a qualified North Carolina attorney as soon as possible.

Do not make the mistake of attending your domestic violence hearing without an attorney. You could lose valuable rights.
