Domestic Violence

About Domestic Violence and Divorce

Domestic violence is a serious issue that Florida courts do not take lightly. When it comes to the divorce process, domestic violence charges can affect everything from child custody, visitation, and even property division. Whether you are the victim of domestic violence, or you have been accused of domestic violence, it is essential that your Winter Springs divorce lawyer fights for your rights and wellbeing in court.

If you and your children have suffered abuse from your significant other, or a family member living in your household, you need to seek a protective order against that individual. This will prevent them from coming within a certain distance of you, as well forbidding contact with you and your children. This should also be addressed in court when dealing with your divorce, as it may not be safe for your child to have visitation with this individual. In other cases, during domestic disputes, false charges of domestic violence are often brought up in order to hurt the individual or to prevent them from seeing their children. In these cases, you need a divorce attorney who can help you sort out this issue while still fighting to retain your parental rights. Whichever end of the situation you are on, the victim or the accused, we can help you during the divorce process.
