Resolving Domestic Violence Issues

Spouses may disagree. Parents and children may have problems in their relationships. Under Illinois law, however, physical abuse is not tolerated and can be severely punished.

I am Kevin W. Thomas, a family law attorney with more than 20 years of experience helping clients resolve domestic violence issues. Give me a call today at 630-485-8012 for a free consultation about your specific situation. From my office in St. Charles, I serve clients in the tri-city area and the surrounding parts of Illinois.

What Happened In Your Case?

I can represent you effectively in a variety of situations, including:

  • Spousal assault/battery
  • Child assault, battery or molestation
  • Sexual assault
  • Emotional abuse
  • Threats of violence

Using my experience, I work to protect the lives and safeties of adults and children who are being abused or threatened with abuse, as well as adults who are falsely accused of being abusers.

Do You Need A Restraining Order?

Before any abused person can effectively assess his or her options for divorce, child custody or temporary or permanent family support, that person must get the violence to stop. As your lawyer, I can assist you in obtaining a restraining order to prohibit your abuser from coming near you or contacting you.

I can also use any evidence of abuse to protect your interests in a subsequent out-of-court negotiation or in a divorce trial.

What If I Am Falsely Accused?

It does happen. A spouse may falsely accuse you of abuse out of spite or in an attempt to improve his or her bargaining position in a divorce proceeding. If this happens to you, I can help you repel the false claim using the evidence.

Free Consultations Available

Evidence of physical or emotional abuse can play a significant role in any divorce trial, as well as in subsequent determinations of child custody, visitation schedules and even asset distribution. Because of this, it is important that you defend your legal rights personal interests.

For a free initial consultation, call my office or contact me online.
