Family law cases can become even more complex with the added element of domestic violence. This is a heartbreaking reality known to many families in the United States. Whether you or your children are the subjects of domestic abuse, or you have been falsely accused of domestic abuse, Givens Givens Sparks is here to ensure that you get fair treatment in your family law case.
How Domestic Abuse Allegations Can Affect Your Case
Allegations of domestic violence can drastically alter your divorce or other family law agreement. If you and your children's other parent are not together, and you want to retain custody or visitation rights, an abuse allegation can result in those rights being taken away. You may even be issued a restraining order.
If you are a victim…
If you are a victim of domestic abuse, we encourage you to contact the authorities right away. Abuse and threats of abuse are extremely serious and should be handled by law enforcement. For allegations of abuse with merit, law enforcement will notify the family courts.
If you have been falsely accused…
You should not take these allegations lightly. Because of the severity of domestic violence, all claims are taken seriously, even false ones. You can contest domestic violence allegations so that your children and other rights (pertaining to family law) are not taken away from you.
