When an abused spouse seeks divorce due to domestic violence, an already sensitive divorce matter has the potential to become even more delicate. As a result, domestic violence cases demand the attention of an experienced lawyer to help avoid further abuse in the future, protect you and your children from an abusive spouse / parent, and seek a positive outcome after such a traumatic event. If you want to learn more about domestic violence and how it may play a role in your divorce or family law matter, please reference the following articles we have provided for you on our site:
Because divorce due to domestic violence still involves the dissolution of a marriage, you need a lawyer who is well versed in divorce law and family law. Divorces under the grounds of abuse must still determine child custody, calculate child support, address terms for spousal maintenance if necessary, and equitably distribute any marital property. Because we are a firm that has dedicated a significant part of our practice to divorce law and criminal law, we are at a unique position to help your family if it has experienced any form of domestic violence.
Call the Law Offices of Scott David Stewart for Fierce Advocacy
If your divorce involves domestic violence, do not hesitate to contact a Phoenix divorce attorney from the Law Offices of Scott David Stewart. There are, however, cases in which accusations of alleged domestic violence may be made in order to manipulate courts into siding with one spouse over another in child custody or child support cases. In this event, we can also advocate fiercely for your rights as a parent. Being convicted of such a malicious charge could cause life-changing consequences, including loss of work, loss of custody of your children, and may even put you behind bars.
