Domestic Violence in Family Law Situations

Domestic Violence in Family Law Situations

In some family law cases, domestic violence is alleged as a tactic for one side to get what they want. However, in many situations, the allegation of abuse is accurate and must be factored in to any child custody and visitation orders.

There are many ways to refer to domestic violence, such as domestic abuse, spousal abuse, or family violence. There are also many ways in which abuse can be inflicted. Emotional abuse and harassment are also forms of domestic violence that may never leave a physical mark. However, these types of abuse are just as damaging and can take their toll on an individual and the children throughout the course of a relationship or marriage.

It is important that you be honest with your family law attorney about the occurrence of abuse within your relationship. We can then make the determination as to how to proceed with your family law case and possibly obtaining a restraining order.

  1. Thanks for helping me learn more about domestic violence and how it works. My uncle has been harassing my aunt for a while now and I had no idea that we can look for a domestic violence lawyer in regards to her situation. What you said about how emotional abuse and harassment can fall under domestic violence made me decide to tell my aunt that she can do something about my uncle. I’ll share this with her so that she’ll be aware.
