As of January 1, 2014, we have a new tool to protect victims of sexual assault called a Sexual Assault Protective Order or "SAPO" for short. We still have Family Abuse Protective Act restraining orders ("FAPAs") and a Stalking Protective Orders ("SPOs"). However, these Orders did not protect a victim that had a one-time encounter with a perpetrator. The FAPA restraining order requires a "relationship" between the parties and a SPO requires at least two incidences of conduct. The SAPO is meant to protect the people who fell through the gaps between these two orders.
Many exciting things are taking place at Aaby Family Law. First, we are moving! Our new office is located at 8705 SW Nimbus Avenue, Suite 230, Beaverton, OR 97008. The building is Creekside Five inside the Creekside Corporate Park. While we will miss our old location, our firm continues to grow and our current space can no longer accomodate our needs. The new office overlooks the Fanno Creek wetlands area and is still located conveniently off of Highway 217. While the new office is clearly nicer and larger, it still maintains the down to earth and unpretentious atmosphere of our old space. We anticipate the move will take place the last weekend of March with us up and running in the new space by April 1, 2014.
