Domestic Violence Lawyer in Paulding County

Helping Clients in Cobb County, Douglas County & the Atlanta Metro Area

A family may endure many different issues before, during, and after a divorce. When it comes to physical and emotional abuse, these troubles can have serious and lasting effects on each member of a family. If you or someone in your family is a victim of domestic violence, know that you are able to take action to keep your family safe. Even if you suspect a potential threat of violence, you should know all your legal options and take preventive action.

Our Paulding County attorneys can help with domestic violence issues that occur in divorce, such as:

Taking Legal Action against Violence & Abuse

Many actions your partner takes may constitute domestic violence, including:

  • Hitting/shoving/injuring you
  • Using weapons or objects against you
  • Threatening to harm you or others
  • Destroying/stealing your belongings
  • Criticizing/name-calling/verbal put-downs
  • Denying basic needs (food, clothing, housing, etc.)

Victims of domestic violence should ensure their immediate safety is not under threat. Family violence is a serious issue that courts and law enforcement do not take lightly. In a divorce, you may petition a court to take legal action in restraining an abusive spouse and restricting their contact with children.

If you are under imminent threat of violence, call 911.

Domestic violence charges may have serious effects on a parent's custody and visitation rights. Sometimes, one parent may falsely accuse the other parent of family violence in order to unfairly gain custody of children. If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence, we may be able to help.
