Domestic violence and divorce

On Behalf of | Jun 4, 2018 | Divorce |

There are many facets of the divorce process to consider, and the experience is different for every couple. Some people are able to work through their divorce with ease, while others may face a multitude of challenges, from a heated custody dispute to anxiety over the distribution of marital property. For some couples, domestic violence allegations are part of the end of their marriage, whether a spouse is falsely accused of this offense or a victim of domestic violence wishes to protect themselves and their children. Handling divorce-related legal matters properly is essential and this is especially true when it comes to domestic violence.

Unfortunately, some people are falsely accused of domestic violence during their divorce for a number of reasons. For example, a spouse may try to accuse their child’s other parent of domestic violence in order to win a custody dispute. With that said, there are also many people who have had to separate from their spouse in order to protect themselves and their kids from domestic violence. Our law office understands how emotional and complex these cases can be for people on both sides, which is why a divorce which involves domestic violence allegations should be approached cautiously.

By moving forward with a divorce, many people have been able to secure a brighter future. Although the process can be stressful, it can also lead to a more fulfilling and comfortable life, especially in certain situations. Head to our family law section for more on filing for divorce.
