Protective orders are serious and will only be granted when proof can be shown that there is abuse and /or a pattern of abuse. This is why reporting the abuse to the police is so important.

 BD omestic Violence is a pattern of behavior that the abuser uses to control or have power over their partner or a family member. Abuse can be physical, emotional, sexual, financial, psychological or done through acts or threats. Abuse can be humiliation, manipulation, control, threats, not allowing a person to keep their paycheck or have access to money.
I often tell people to make sure they have money in a separate account or stashed away that their partner can’t get a hold of. The second thing I tell them is to report the abuse. If bruises or marks are left on them, take pictures. Documentation and reporting to the police are imperative when seeking a protective order and fighting for sole managing conservatorship.
Protective orders can be issued with the help of the Bexar County Family Justice Center or with the help of an attorney. For a protective order to be issued there must be proof of imminent threat or harm.
Voice mails, texts and/or pictures of recent physical abuse or violence will need to be shown to the judge. The harm must be imminent, meaning you can’t say I was abused or threatened 3 years ago.

  BThere are two types of veneers- porcelain and resin composite. Porcelain veneers are very thin pieces of sculpted porcelain that fit over damaged teeth, kind of like a shell. They are custom colored to match your teeth. They are created by a dental laboratory.
These porcelain shells are bonded onto the front surface of the teeth to create a natural and attractive smile.
Porcelain veneers are resistant to decay and staining. They can even be more resilient than the natural enamel of your teeth!
There are many scenarios in which porcelain veneers can help. Some patients use them as“instant orthodontics”to correct crooked front teeth. Other patients may have severe staining that tooth whitening cannot improve or have certain teeth that are not proportioned or balanced with the rest of their smile.
Resin composite veneers are placed directly on the teeth and are sculpted by the doctor to create the desired effect. They are used to close small gaps between teeth; to replace missing tooth structure, to lengthen short teeth and to straighten minor crowding. They are lower in cost due to the fact that a lab fee is not necessary. Dr.Duque will determine whether the desired out
