What Is Considered Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence is any act of physical force, confinement, or interference with an individual that results in bodily injury or places that person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury. It only takes one time for someone to become a victim of domestic violence and it can occur at any age between young couples all the way to elderly citizens.
According to the law, domestic violence occurs when someone commits one of many acts against family members or current/former spouses. The crime of domestic abuse is broken down into several categories depending on what action has been committed: assault, battery, aggravated assault/battery, sexual assault/rape, stalking, harassment, child abuse/neglect, menacing, reckless endangerment, criminal restraint, kidnapping or false imprisonment. A domestic violence lawyer can help guide you.

How Can Domestic Violence Affect My Divorce?
Divorce is a difficult situation for everyone involved. In addition to all of the emotional and mental turmoil, divorce can have a strong financial impact as well. Sometimes these issues will become a factor in domestic violence cases involving divorce. If you are going through a divorce, it’s important to learn about how domestic violence could affect your case. You should also know that there are actions you can take if either you or someone close to you is trying to escape from an abusive relationship.
Domestic violence can factor into your divorce by making a situation more complex or by changing your options. A person who has committed an act of domestic violence against their spouse may not be considered fit for custody of the children, but this kind of ruling can come too late to immediately prevent that parent from taking possession of them. If you’re going through a divorce and want information about protecting yourself and your children during the process, contact one of our caring attorneys today.
