How can a domestic violence/assault charge affect my job?

Can you identify warning signs of an abusive relationship?

If you are in a relationship that is suspiciously volatile, you may be wondering if your spouse is abusive.

Busting common misbeliefs about domestic violence

The process of coping with domestic violence and the outcome of each situation varies from family to family depending on the situation, response of each party and surrounding conditions. While many Illinois residents quietly survive familial violence, it is in fact, more serious and debilitating than many people can see or believe.

Steps to getting a protective order

A protection order in Illinois acts as a deterrent to help keep people safe from a known assailant. The Illinois General Assembly states that an order of protection can be obtained by someone being abused, neglected or mistreated by a family member, care giver or member of the household. In order to get a protective order, a person must file a petition with the court. If a person already has a related case in court, the petition can be filed as part of that case. For example, if a person is getting divorced and wants an order against the soon-to-be ex-spouse, then it can be filed as part of that case.

You may have even implored your partner to take steps to confront and correct the issue.
