Divorce and allegations of domestic violence

On Behalf of | Oct 20, 2017 | Domestic Violence |

Most married couples realize that divorce can be difficult for a plethora of reasons. Sometimes, emotions run high over the way that marital property is split between a couple, while others may be worried or upset about custody decisions, visitation rights, child support, and many other issues. However, we know that victims of domestic violence and those who have been accused of this offense may have an even harder time as they end their marriage.

If you are a domestic violence victim, you could be afraid or unsure of your rights. However, it is essential to ensure that the abuse is brought to an end and that you and your children are protected. Moreover, certain options may not be possible as a result of intimate partner violence, such as the collaborative process. On the other hand, you may have been accused of abusing someone in your family. Even if these accusations are not true, they could be very detrimental and you should carefully assess your divorce.

Domestic violence can make the divorce process even more tough in various ways. In fact, some victims may be afraid to split up with their spouse in the first place. If you think that your rights have been violated, or that you may not receive a fair outcome in the courtroom, it is essential to move forward carefully.
