Important Information About Domestic Violence Cases During COVID-19
The Chief Judge of the Seventh Judicial Circuit issued an Order on March 18, 2020, that closes the courthouse to the general public from March 18, 2020 through April 6, 2020. The only hearings that may be held must be deemed by the court as “Mission Critical” hearings.
One such example of a Mission Critical Hearing is hearings involving applications for Injunctions, also known as Restraining Orders. Typically, Injunctions are coupled with an arrest for Domestic Battery when the victim of domestic battery is provided directions on how to seek an Injunction against the Defendant. Here is a link to our articles concerning injunctions.
Attorneys are able to attend the hearings and defend those accused of Domestic Violence and are trying to avoid having an Injunction issued against them. If you have been arrested for Domestic Battery, or someone is seeking an Injunction or a Restraining Order against you, do not do this alone. It is important that you speak to an attorney who is knowledgeable, skilled, and aggressive in defending these matters.
