Addressing The Difficult Subjects Of Domestic Violence & Child Abuse

The state of Texas takes incidents and allegations of domestic violence and child abuse very seriously. Whether this is the first time your family has been affected, or you have gone through this before, an experienced lawyer can help. I am Fort Worth attorney Daniel R. Bacalis, P.C., and I help all parties involved in incidents of domestic violence and child abuse.

If you or your family has been affected by an incident of domestic violence, I can help you take immediate action and get the family protection you need. If you have been accused of family violence or child abuse, I will make sure your rights are protected and you get a chance to tell your side of the story. Issues of domestic violence are particularly heated when they coincide with a divorce. I can help you make sure your situation is taken care of correctly.

Protective Orders

When someone in your family has been the victim of abuse, you want to make sure everyone in your family is protected. I will help you file a protective order or restraining order. This will keep the offender 200 yards away from the victim at all times, forcing them out of the home, school or business, with or without a court hearing.

I will also help you with the long-term effects of domestic violence. If you suffer from abused wife syndrome, I will get you the emotional help you need, so you do not go back to a dangerous situation. It is also important to make sure your children get the support they need during this time. I can make sure they get help from professionals (including mental health professionals and counselors), and deal with Child Protective Services (CPS) so they do not have to tell these stories over and over again.

False Accusations of Domestic Violence

Have you been falsely accused of domestic violence or child abuse? The allegations alone could have a major effect on your life. I will work with independent sources in order to reach an objective understanding of what happened, and make sure your rights are protected throughout the process. If you are convicted of a family violence charge, you could lose your firearm or professional license, and you could be held criminally responsible for actions.
