There are a wide variety of reasons why couples decide that it is time to part ways, from infidelity to the simple fact that they are incompatible with each other. However, in Jackson County, and in all of Missouri’s communities, some couples split up as a result of domestic violence. At Stange Law Firm, we are very familiar with the multitude of ways this can affect victims, those falsely accused of domestic violence, and children.
Handling domestic violence cases appropriately is essential. If you are a victim of domestic violence, or if your child has been abused, it is pivotal to protect yourself and your child from further harm and take steps to ensure that abuse does not occur again. Unfortunately, domestic violence can have a devastating impact on children and significantly interrupt their current life. Worse yet, the consequences of domestic violence can last for years and may create challenges for victims in the future.
On the other hand, you may have been falsely accused of domestic violence, which is also a difficult position to find yourself in. Under these circumstances, it is vital to understand your rights and make sure you carefully address the allegations. After all, these accusations could have a detrimental effect on your future as well, whether you are unable to see your children or have trouble when applying for a job.
