Can I See My Children While My Family Violence Case Is Pending?
The answer is probably. You probably will be able to continue to see your children even though you are out on bond for a case of assaulting your children’s mother. This isn’t always the case. In rare cases, the judge can order the defendant not only be ordered to stay away from the complainant or the alleged victim in the case but sometimes the judge can order, as a condition of someone’s bond, that they also stay away from the children. Sometimes, the judge may issue a protective order that specifically prohibits a defendant from having any contact whatsoever with his children, sometimes they make certain limitations like they can have contact but only if it’s supervised or pursuant to a pending family law order and sometimes CPS or Child Protective Services gets involved and they order the complainant not to allow you to have access to the children.
Determining your ability to have contact with your loved ones can be complicated areas of the law and when dealing with these issues you should seek the guidance of a competent domestic violence attorney to guide you through the process.
