CHILD CUSTODY: DOES MY CHILD NEED A LAWYER?

Divorce proceedings can be smooth, civil processes. But they can also be messy, complex, and aggravating at times. This is especially true if children are involved.

FINANCIAL ABUSE: DOMESTIC ABUSE ISN'T JUST PHYSICAL

Think of the phrase "domestic violence." Which particular images come to mind? Odds are, the horrific and terrifying images we have all seen in movies and television are some of the first that spring to the forefront. While these terrible events do happen in real life, there are also other not so conspicuous ways in which abusers can harm their victims. The National Network to End Domestic Violence defines domestic violence as "a pattern of coercive, controlling behavior" that can include "physical abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, sexual abuse, or financial abuse." Domestic violence is a tragic situation no matter how you look at it; it can leave victims feeling hopeless and afraid, and leads couples down terrible paths that can include trauma, psychological damage, medical fees, and divorce lawyer fees.
