Domestic violence is a serious issue for everyone involved. In addition to the obvious physical safety and emotional health concerns, domestic violence can have a significant impact on an ensuing divorce, affecting everything from child custody arrangements to the division of assets. If you are entering divorce proceedings in which claims of domestic violence are involved, make sure you work with an experienced lawyer who can help protect your interests throughout the divorce.
At The Powell Law Firm, our attorneys represent clients in all types of domestic violence and other family law matters. We have more than 70 years of combined legal experience representing clients in Pearland, Houston and other areas of Texas. Our lawyers take our clients' cases seriously, staying in contact and explaining our clients' rights and options throughout the legal process.
The first step for a domestic violence victim is to utilize the full legal protections available. If you are a victim of domestic violence or are at risk, our lawyers can petition the court for protective orders on your behalf, to make sure you are safe from harm.
The problem of domestic violence cases is twofold. On the one hand, it is critical to make sure domestic violence victims are protected by law. But on the other hand, it is not uncommon for a spouse to make false claims of domestic violence in order to gain an advantage in divorce proceedings. We also represent people falsely accused of domestic violence to make sure they can exercise their rights in the divorce proceedings.
Domestic Violence And Divorce
Our lawyers work with clients to manage all of the implications that domestic violence claims have on the outcome of divorce and family law matters. One of the most important of these issues is child custody. A parenting plan will be altered dramatically if one of the parents has been accused or convicted of domestic violence. This includes matters of moving out of the area with a child, physical custody and other issues. Our attorneys also help clients with any other issues that arise regarding family violence and divorce.
