Protecting children from domestic violence

On Behalf of | Jul 29, 2017 | Domestic Violence |

On this blog, different angles concerning domestic violence have been discussed. For example, someone may find themselves falsely accused of this offense and have their lives thrown into chaos. However, some people in Lee County are subjected to domestic violence and it is pivotal for parents to protect their kids from exposure to abuse. At Fried and Fried, we are aware of the different hurdles that parents who are going through this may face.

Sometimes, parents are afraid to have their partner held accountable for domestic violence. Whether they worry about the consequences their partner will face or are worried about retaliation, there are different reasons why people choose to stay silent. However, when a child is being abused or exposed to domestic violence, parents have a responsibility to take action. Each situation is unique, but parents should do what they have to ensure that their kids are safe. Sometimes, this may involve obtaining a restraining order to prevent an abusive individual from having access to a child.

Domestic violence occurs for many reasons and takes various forms. Sometimes, it may involve threats and verbal abuse, while other illegal occurrences of family violence involve physical attacks or sexual behavior. If you believe that your child runs the risk of being exposed to any of these behaviors, or any form of unlawful domestic violence, you should address the problem at once.

Over on our domestic violence section, you will be able to read through additional material concerning this topic, such as restraining orders.
