Warrenville Advocates for Those Threatened by Domestic Violence

We have assisted victims of domestic abuse seeking relief for more than 20 years. Our knowledgeable attorneys understand the threat of domestic violence poses much more than physical danger; the psychological and emotional effects are just as damaging. According to the Illinois Domestic Violence Act, there are many actions that are classified as domestic violence, including several involving no actual physical contact. By law, the list consists of:

  • Physical abuse, including sexual abuse;
  • Harassment;
  • Intimidation of a dependent;
  • Interference with personal liberty;
  • Neglect;
  • Willful deprivation;
  • Exploitation; and
  • Stalking.

Additionally, in order to be considered domestic violence, the perpetrator must have a dating, family, or household relationship with the victim. This includes current and former spouses, romantic partners, parents, children, co-parents, and assistants to those with disabilities. Stalking/No contact orders can be obtained when no such family or personal relationship exists, such as in disputes between neighbors, acquaintances, and business associates. Call our knowledgeable attorneys to determine whether your circumstances qualify.

Orders of Protection in Illinois

If you are being stalked, threatened, harassed, or abused, the lawyers at Calabrese Associates, P.C., are equipped to help you seek relief through an order of protection. Sometimes called a "restraining order," an order of protection can be issued by the court on an emergency basis, affording you and your children the security you need. An emergency order of protection can remain in force for up to 21 days, after which an interim order may be issued. Finally, after a full hearing, a plenary order of protection can be issued to last up to two years. Plenary Orders of Protection can be renewed or extended beyond the initial two year period under appropriate circumstances.

An order of protection can place geographic restrictions on the alleged abuser, as well as other limitations. The accused may also be required to attend domestic violence programs and to surrender firearms or other weapons. Violation of an order of protection is extremely serious and can lead to severe penalties to the abuser.
