On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in Divorce on Friday, October 20, 2017.

With family law matters, all sorts of hurdles can arise. However, there are some unique situations that can make it even more difficult for people to work through the process of ending their marriage or handling other family law issues, from custody disagreements to child support. For example, some people are accused of or subjected to intimate partner violence, which can complicate things considerably. Our firm recognizes how essential it is for people in this position to be careful as they make their way through divorce or handle other family law issues.

If you have been accused of abusing someone in your family, the allegations could have a major impact on the outcome of your family law case, even if you are innocent. At the same time, you or one of your children may have been a victim of family violence, in which case it is vital to carefully work through your situation. First of all, you should do what you can to protect yourself or anyone in your family who has been subjected to abuse. Not only should you focus on preventing abuse in the present, but you should also do what you can to ensure that domestic violence never effects your loved ones again.

Working through these types of challenges can be hard, especially for someone who is trying to recover from domestic violence or address accusations that are not true. Under these conditions, it is imperative to fight for your rights. On the divorce portion of our site, you can go over more on family law.
