Domestic violence can impact many facets of family law. The court pays ample attention to domestic violence claims when making child custody determinations. If it is deemed to be in the child’s best interests, the court may even terminate parental rights.
These situations can be complex and need to be handled appropriately. No matter what side of the issue you are on, you deserve to have your rights protected if you are the victim of domestic violence or you have been accused of domestic violence.
