Domestic Violence

If you are a victim of physical or verbal abuse from your spouse, family member, or significant other, the Law Office of Matthew J. Jensen can help you.  Domestic violence restraining orders are available in situations involving violence between people who are married, divorced, cohabitating, currently (or were formerly) dating, or have had children together.

Temporary restraining orders are effective for three to four weeks and can provide interim relief to victims of abuse.  A permanent restraining order is effective for up to five years.  If you have recently been assaulted or threatened with physical violence, you should contact the police immediately, seek medical treatment, and consult with an attorney about obtaining a restraining order.
