Domestic Abuse And Your Divorce

Serious Allegations Require A Serious Response

Allegations of domestic violence during divorce proceedings can put a screeching halt to a person's life. It goes without saying that spousal abuse and other types of domestic violence, such as child abuse, are never acceptable under any circumstances. When these situations occur, the assistance of a knowledgeable, compassionate and fierce advocate is critical for either party.

Domestic violence and other forms of abuse — such as psychological, emotional and verbal abuse — are present in many marriages, regardless of socioeconomic and educational backgrounds. Often, victims and victimizers are reluctant to discuss these issues, even with their attorneys. The attorneys at Peter Morris Law are experienced in dealing with these delicate matters and its effects on our clients as well as their case.

Unfortunately, in other instances, false domestic abuse allegations can be, and are, made during the course of a divorce in many cases. Officials have no choice but to react in the same manner in order to protect family members from an allegedly violent person, even if there is no real danger. Fighting back against these allegations and protecting your rights require focus, determination and strength — qualities possessed by the attorneys at Peter Morris Law in New York.

Lawyers Who Understand The Gravity Of The Situation

When domestic abuse is present or alleged, real consequences ensue. Parents may be prohibited from seeing their children, and could see their reputations sullied — even their employment could be jeopardized. Truly egregious abuse could also result in a lopsided award of marital property. It takes a deft touch to both champion the rights of the abused and defend clients against possible false accusations of domestic violence in the midst of a divorce case, but Peter Morris Law is more than up to the task.

The attorneys at Peter Morris Law also assist in getting protective orders in place against truly abusive spouses. Nobody deserves to live his or her life under threat of violence, particularly from a husband or wife.
