Domestic violence and family law

On Behalf of | May 20, 2017 | Divorce |

While divorce and other family law issues such as child support can be very difficult, these matters can be even tougher for those who are also going through challenges due to domestic violence occurrences or allegations. At the Law Offices of Beverly L. Brennan, we are aware of the different problems that families in Florida may encounter because of family violence. Moreover, we know that each situation is unique.

For victims of domestic violence, it is imperative to protect children from any physical or verbal threats from a family member. Unfortunately, these complications can make victims and entire families feel hopeless or unsure of how to handle their circumstances. However, victims of domestic violence should not be afraid to step forward and address what they have been through.

On the other hand, some people may find themselves falsely accused of domestic violence. Not only do people facing these charges often have an incredible amount of shame, but the allegations could affect their career and prevent them from seeing their children. Understandably, this can make the divorce process and other family law issues much harder.

By preparing for court and gaining a strong understanding of your rights, you may be able to improve your chances of securing an outcome that is more favorable for you. During these times, you should try to remain calm and stay focused on working towards an end result that is healthy, especially if you have kids.
