Seek Immediate Help
In cases of domestic violence, it is critical to seek immediate help. Oftentimes, victims wait or fail to report an incident, thinking that a violent attack was a one-time occurrence. In these situations, violence can escalate, placing you or your child in further danger. Failing to report domestic violence may make your claim harder to prove once a divorce or custody position has been filed. Failing to protect your child from being exposed to abuse can lead to a restriction of your parental rights.
If you are fearful for yours or your child’s safety, you should find a safe place to stay and contact the police. Once you are in a secure location, contact our team, and they can petition the court for an emergency restriction to help ensure your protection.
