Family violence is something that we take very seriously, and we will take your case with an understanding and empathetic attitude. Know that you don’t have to fight your charge alone. We are here to fight allegations of family violence.
The regulations that govern family law are constantly changing. Defendants must have a legal team that fully grasps every applicable law and knows how they can work in your favor. New cases are decided every single day. Let our attorneys help you find the way to deal with these charges during your time of need.
Restraining and Protective Orders
Our law firm can help you with restraining and protective order situations as well. We understand how stressful these can be for the defendant, and while we will never argue that some of these orders are completely necessary, others are not.
Types of Family Violence We Defend
Carter Pilgrim has been handling family law cases for many years. We know that every situation is incredibly different. Though domestic violence instances continue to increase, so do the actions taken across the world to try and curb them.
Many instances of abuse occur between family members who live in close quarters every day, but so do false allegations, misunderstandings, and misconstrued situations. Whatever role you’ve played in domestic violence, we know that you likely feel victimized, ostracised, and alone.
Here are the types of domestic abuse allegations we typically defend:
- Physical abuse (hitting, kicking, punching)
- Sexual abuse/sexual assault
- Economic abuse
- Emotional abuse
- Psychological abuse
Our lawyers will defend you against criminal charges of domestic assault or abuse, working as hard as we can for a favorable outcome for you. Penalties for domestic abuse and violence can be incredibly harsh, ranging from fines and court fees to immigration issues and jail time.
A felony conviction will strip you of civil rights and play a significant role in determining your future, even if jail time is not substantial. You could be permanently deprived of all rights to your children without supervised visits as an option.
Defining Domestic Violence
While crimes that fall under the umbrella of domestic violence would absolutely be considered crimes outside of the home, the relationship between the accused and the accuser is what actually constitutes the definition of domestic violence. The following relationships will determine whether or not a case is considered domestic violence:
- Family member (spouse, sibling, parent, child)
- A person with whom the accused has a child
- Relatives (such as an in-law or grandparent)
- Roommates and housemates
- A romantic partner, whether it be past or present
It’s crucial to us that our clients know if they’ve been charged correctly, and we will take every action possible to give them the fair treatment they deserve under the law
When to Seek Legal Counsel

It’s our job to go to bat for you, and we take that job very seriously. We need to know every detail of your story starting from the very beginning. Just because you’ve been charged with a crime doesn’t mean you lose your voice or your right to tell your side of the story.
