Domestic violence incidents must be handled appropriately

On Behalf of | Apr 7, 2017 | Family Law

Domestic violence isn’t something that you can ignore. Instead, you have to take the steps that are necessary for you and your children to remain safe. When physical violence is a factor in your relationship, you should understand that the situation is likely going to get worse. The chance of it improving is slim to none. We know this is a troubling situation for you to face; however, we can help you to learn about the options you have to help deal with the matter.

If you are leaving an abusive relationship, you need to make sure that you take all the steps you can to protect yourself. One of options that you have is seeking a restraining order. This order, which is issued by the court, forbids your abuser from coming too close to you. This isn’t a foolproof method of staying safe, but it is a good start.

We understand that you might have some concerns about the entire situation. We can help you to explore the possible actions that you can take from the restraining order through getting a divorce. If you have children, we can help you to learn about what options you have for keeping your children safe.

Each decision you make during this process can have a profound impact on your future. You should take the time to think about what your goals are for your case, as well as what you want for your future. All of this should come into the picture when you are making your plan. We can discuss your concerns with you so that you can make decisions based on your needs and desires.
