The Legal Effects Of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence not only affects the emotional and physical states of the individuals involved in the relationship, but can also change the way the law affects them as well.
- For example:
- Divorces are often handled differently when domestic violence is a factor, and the alleged abuser may find himself or herself with diminished parenting time rights.
- Domestic violence allegations are sometimes used for strategic reasons in a divorce. For example, a spouse may use such an allegation in order to get one person out of the house.
- Allegations may also be used to wrongly separate a parent from his or her children.
If there are allegations of domestic violence involved in your divorce, you should take immediate steps to protect yourself. If you fail to act, you could even find yourself barred from your house and contact with your children.
