Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence

Welcome to Ashley A. Andrews APC, where we provide legal services for domestic violence cases.

As part of our services, we recommend a questionnaire developed by the Family Court Services at the San Bernardino Superior Court as an outstanding tool for purposes of child custody mediation. We ask anyone already scheduled for a consultation with us who has any kind of family law matter including domestic violence issues, or anyone else looking to obtain advice related to child custody or domestic violence issues to please print out, complete and bring this form with them when they meet with Ms. Andrews.


* For those cases dealing only with domestic violence issues please complete only those sections pertaining to such matters.

* * Because you are bringing this form to your meeting with us and not directly submitting it to the Court there is no need for signature. The purpose of this form is purely informative in nature and its purpose is simply for informational gathering and guiding your consultation process with us.

The Domestic Violence Cycle

When it comes to domestic violence cases, there are three distinct phases in the cycle:

1) Prevention: Seeking out resources or finding safe shelter prior to a violent incident

2) Intervention: Taking immediate action after a violent incident has occurred

3) Post-intervention: Following up after any legal process has concluded.

In order to adequately prepare a defense against a domestic violence charge, it is essential to have an understanding of all three stages. Our team has an in-depth knowledge of these phases and can work with you on understanding them fully in order to put forth the strongest defense possible.

At our law firm, we understand how frightening and confusing a domestic violence charge can be. With the right legal representation, you can protect your rights and take action to resolve the issue.

Therefore, we strive to provide compassionate legal services that focus on resolving your case quickly and efficiently.

Can a domestic violence case be settled?

Domestic violence cases often result in complex and lengthy court proceedings. It is important to know whether or not your case can be settled without going through court proceedings. While many domestic violence cases go to trial, our team can advise you on your options for resolving the matter out of court if that is a feasible option for your circumstances. We have extensive experience working with clients on their domestic violence cases and can provide legal counsel throughout every step of the process.

What proof do you need for a restraining order?

A restraining order is a civil order that can help keep someone from coming near or communicating with another person. To obtain a restraining order, certain elements must be proven in court, such as threats or violent behavior. With this kind of order, you must provide proof that abuse occurred, which can be done through testimonies from witnesses or physical evidence such as pictures or video footage. Our attorneys are skilled at helping our clients prepare the necessary proof required by the court and build an effective case against those who threaten their safety and security.

We understand that securing a restraining order can also be part of your defense strategy for dealing with domestic violence charges. We provide guidance on the type of proof you need for a restraining order as well as represent you through each step of the process from filing to hearing. Our team is experienced in dealing with all matters related to restraining orders, from crafting them in such a way as to best protect our clients, as well as any enforcement actions which may be necessary thereafter.
