In some family law cases, domestic violence is alleged as a tactic for one side to get what they want. However, in many situations, the allegation of abuse is accurate and must be factored in to any child custody and visitation orders.
Our attorneys and staff at the Boca Raton office of Brodie & Friedman, P.A. are sensitive to the needs of individuals on either side of the violence accusations. We are committed to aggressively standing up for your rights while using our experience to get to the heart of the matter as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Domestic Violence in Family Law Situations
There are many ways to refer to domestic violence, such as domestic abuse, spousal abuse, or family violence. There are also many ways in which abuse can be inflicted. Emotional abuse and harassment are also forms of domestic violence that may never leave a physical mark. However, these types of abuse are just as damaging and can take their toll on an individual and the children throughout the course of a relationship or marriage.
It is important that you be honest with your family law attorney about the occurrence of abuse within your relationship. We can then make the determination as to how to proceed with your family law case and possibly obtaining a restraining order.
While our family lawyers provide experienced and knowledgeable counsel, our involvement in these cases is limited to family court.
We deal solely with the family law aspects of domestic violence, not the criminal.
