How Domestic Violence Affects Divorce

There is no place for domestic violence in any relationship, especially a divorce. When spousal abuse or domestic violence is present in a marriage, the divorce proceedings can be affected in several ways.

Domestic violence in the marriage may affect:

  • Power dynamic
  • Financial contributions and decisions
  • Communication
  • Friendships and familial relationships
  • Children’s growth and mental health
  • Child custody and parenting time

Those escaping a marriage in which domestic violence is present have options and their safety is the primary concern. Call to speak to an attorney and schedule a private and confidential consultation.

Protecting You & Your Children

When a relationship involves an abusive situation, the judge may issue a protective order, known as a 209A restraining order. It is meant to prevent abuse to you and your children, if present.

If you are in a domestic violence situation, please call (508) 300-9788 to speak with a knowledgeable domestic violence lawyer in Norfolk County.
