On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in divorce on Friday, November 17, 2017.
With family law, various legal challenges may arise. However, those involving domestic violence are often particularly difficult to work through and may carry significant consequences. Depending on your circumstances, you may be worried about your safety or the well-being of your children. Or, you could fear that your reputation and career will be shattered. Our Missouri law firm fully understands the amount of stress that domestic violence disputes can generate and we believe it is important to take steps to protect yourself.
If you are afraid that you may be subjected to domestic violence, it could be a good idea to be prepared to capture any incident on your cell phone or via another mechanism, such as a security camera. If you have already obtained evidence of domestic violence on your phone, you may want to consider using this footage as evidence in court.
On the other hand, if you have been falsely accused of domestic violence, you may want to consider using any cell phone recordings or other evidence you have to prove your innocence. These allegations can lead to permanent challenges, interfering with your ability to land a job and adversely affecting your life in other ways.
As with any family law matter, domestic violence cases can be difficult. That said, taking steps to protect yourself, such as closely going over the details involved in your case and reviewing the law, can be very helpful. Over on our divorce page, more information related to domestic violence can be read.
