Taking action when domestic violence threatens your relationship

Domestic violence is a problem that can shatter a family’s dynamics. For married couples, domestic violence could spell the end of the relationship, leading to a divorce case that could become emotional and complex in a hurry. When children are involved, domestic violence allegations will loom large in any disputes about child custody. For couples who aren’t married, the abuse victim may want to secure a restraining order to attempt to make sure the abuse stops. In many ways, domestic violence can become a legal issue that you need to address sooner rather than later.
