Secured Order for Protection in Domestic Abuse Case

07/14/2015

Rob Hill recently represented a woman whose husband had been abusive to both her and their six-year-old child. The husband refused to agree to an order for protection and insisted on a court hearing/trial before a Judge.

As a volunteer attorney for the Tubman Safety Project, Rob volunteered for the case. Working with the husband’s attorney, Rob secured for the wife an order that prevented the husband from going to the wife’s home or work place. Rob negotiated an arrangement for the husband’s parenting time so that the child would be in a safe environment when visited by her father.
