Anti-Harassment & Domestic Violence

Sometimes a batterer will use a companion animal to threaten,  monitor, or injure his victim. Or, one will assault or neglect a pet in  order to emotionally disturb the pet’s guardian.

Other times, an ex-spouse will compel the children to act cruelly toward family pets and wild animals.

Aside from potential criminal liability, such behavior could be grounds for modifying or terminating custody or visitation and  enforcing a restraining order to prevent future contact with the  children.

An animal law attorney can support you in obtaining the necessary protection orders and adjusting  parenting plans to conform with the mental and physical well-being of  your human and nonhuman children.
