Understanding The Implications Of Domestic Violence Charges During Your Divorce

Domestic violence issues can have a significant impact on divorce proceedings. Perhaps your spouse has become physically or verbally abusive and you no longer feel safe in your home. Or maybe you and your partner had a minor argument and you have been unexpectedly hit with a restraining order. Regardless of the circumstances, it's important to work with an attorney who can protect your rights and interests.

Does A Small Argument Really Qualify As Domestic Violence?

Our attorneys at Busciglio & Sheridan Law Group represent men and women in Tampa and others throughout Florida on both sides of domestic violence issues. It's important to remember that these matters are not gender or age-specific. Men, women and even children can be the victims of or perpetrators of violence or intimidation in the family home.

Each family we work with presents its own set of unique circumstances. Some common types of domestic violence issues we see include:

  • Stalking
  • Sexual assault and sexual battery
  • Aggravated battery
  • Assault or aggravated assault
  • Kidnapping
  • False accusations of violence resulting in false imprisonment
  • Other criminal offenses that result in physical harm to members of the household

As mentioned, domestic violence matters are not exclusive to married couples. Former spouses, live-in partners, unmarried parents, siblings and others may be subject to domestic violence charges and possible injunctions and restraining orders.
