How Domestic Violence Affects Divorce
There is no place for domestic violence in any relationship, especially a divorce. When spousal abuse or domestic violence is present in a marriage, the divorce proceedings can be affected in several ways.
Domestic violence in the marriage may affect:
- Power dynamic
- Financial contributions and decisions
- Friendships and familial relationships
- Children’s growth and mental health
- Child custody and parenting time
Those escaping a marriage in which domestic violence is present have options and their safety is the primary concern. Call to speak to an attorney and schedule a private and confidential consultation.
Restraining Orders and Protecting You & Your Children
When a relationship involves an abusive situation, the judge may issue a protective order, known as a 209A restraining order. It is meant to prevent abuse to you and your children, if present. In a case like this, Angel Burke Law can act as your restraining order lawyer.
