What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence describes an array of behaviors, including but not limited to harassment, threats of harm as well as verbal and physical attacks. At its core, domestic violence is about control. One partner in a relationship will typically utilize a number of tactics to control the other partner.

What may begin with name-calling, jealousy and an attempt to isolate a person from friends or family often escalates to physical violence. Domestic violence impacts everyone in the family and does not end without some help.

Family Violence In Divorce

The most dangerous time for domestic violence victims is when they try to leave a relationship. If an abusive spouse is causing you to fear for your safety, call the police, and then call the lawyer.

We have worked with many clients through complicated divorces. We can advise you on the most effective ways to leave a marriage and protect your interest in marital assets. We will help you leverage the legal system to your advantage. If children are involved, we can assist you with pursuing temporary custody of the children.

If you need to file a criminal complaint, be as thorough as possible. The details in a criminal record can be very important to protecting your interests.

It Will Not End Until You Take Steps To End It

Victims of domestic violence often make bargains with themselves in hopes that their abusers will change and their situations will get better. While this can be a helpful coping mechanism, the truth is that the abuse will not end unless you take steps to change it. You can get out.
