Domestic violence is a problem that does not discriminate; it is statistically consistent across all socio-economic and racial lines. Chapter 50-B of the North Carolina General Statutes allows domestic violence victims to seek an order of protection against the offender.
Actions can only be filed against persons with whom the aggrieved party has or had a familial relationship (current or former spouse, persons of the opposite sex with whom you have lived, parents, grandparents, etc.). Criminal remedies are also available. Gailor Hunt Jenkins Davis & Taylor can help you in initiating or defending against these actions.
