Defending Against Allegations Of Child Abuse And Family Violence

Child abuse, domestic violence and family violence charges may have criminal and civil repercussions. At the Law Offices of Randy Wilson and Kristin Postell, PLLC, we have experience in handling these types of cases in criminal, family and civil courts. Contact Law Offices of Randy Wilson and Kristin Postell, PLLC today for more information about how we fight for positive solutions to these and other legal matters.

Domestic Violence Charges

Individuals who are charged with domestic violence are facing jail time, fines, a permanent criminal record and the stigma attached to allegations of domestic violence. Attorney Kristin Postell works hard on behalf of her clients to help them regain as much control of the situation as possible. We can help our clients deal with relocating if a restraining order prevents them from returning home. We can also aggressively argue against spousal abuse, family violence or domestic violence charges in court and determine if an alleged victim is possibly falsifying statements.

Child Abuse Allegations

Allegations of child abuse are very serious. An individual may permanently lose custody of his or her children in certain circumstances. Regardless of the level of child abuse alleged, we can help you. We are experienced at handling police investigations, as well as dealing with Child Protective Services (CPS) on your behalf.  Our firm can also represent you when you are navigating a case filed by the state to terminate your parental rights.

Family Law Implications

As a family law attorney with years of experience in the area of criminal defense, we can handle any family law issues that may arise as a result of child abuse or domestic violence charges. In some cases, an individual may accuse another of violence to gain the upper hand in family law matters, such as child custody orders. We thoroughly examine the matter and stand up for your rights at every stage of the criminal and family court cases.

Other Implications

  • Is also important to note that if you are convicted of domestic violence, this conviction will impact your future ability to purchase or possess firearms.
  • If you are convicted of domestic abuse a first time, a second charge and conviction will be an automatic felony charge.
