Family Law When Domestic Violence Is a Factor

Family law cases can be made even more complex with the addition of domestic violence allegations. Learn how allegations of abuse within the family abuse can alter the course and the outcome of family law cases.

Myriad factors can alter the course of any given family law case. One of the more monumental complications is an allegation of domestic violence or abuse.

How Domestic Violence Can Change Child Custody

If a parent claims that their child’s other parent is abusive, the judge can issue a temporary order for custody in response. If you are in an abusive relationship or you believe you or your child is the victim of this type of abuse, Pollack Law Group, P.C., can help you file a temporary order for custody. If you are a parent and you are being falsely accused of abuse, we can also fight to help you overcome these allegations so they do not negatively affect your custody agreement or parenting plan.

When Domestic Violence Allegations Are False

Often, in an attempt to ruin a reputation, a spouse may make false allegations of abuse to manipulate the outcome of a family law case in his or her favor. If you are the victim of false allegations of abuse, we invite you to contact one of our experienced divorce attorneys as soon as possible. Making a false allegation of abuse is actually a common divorce trick that can quickly backfire.

Judges make custody and parenting decisions based on what's in the child's best interest. When claims of abuse are proven to be nothing more than a ploy to secure more parenting rights (and to cut the other parent more and more out of the children's lives), the attorneys at PLG present legal theories to the court to show that the alleging parent is not likely to encourage a co-parenting environment and how this behavior alone should indicate how that parent is not and will not always act in the best interest of the child. Often times this can result in a shifting in custodial parent roles!

Whether you are a father, mother, husband or wife, the skilled divorce attorneys at Miller Law Group, P.C., have the resources and intellectual capital you need to fight for the outcome you deserve. If you are facing a family law case in which allegations of domestic violence are a factor, get in touch with us today to set up a free, no-obligation consultation.
