Divorce & Domestic Violence in Texas
Trustworthy Lawyer Serving Dallas & Collin County
You should always take instances of domestic violence seriously. If a partner has been verbally or physically abusive to you or your children then you need to get out of the house immediately. Even if you are willing to forgive your partner for their actions, you need to make someone else aware of the situation and consult with an attorney. Domestic violence is serious and far too many people try to ignore or forgive the problem, which often results in more severe and frequent instances of abuse.

What is Domestic Violence & How Can I Protect Myself?
Domestic violence is a rampant problem in America, and one of the major issues is that victims do not always come forward and press charges. Divorce courts are very sympathetic to spouses who were victims of abuse and always put their needs first when it can be proven that abuse occurred. One of the first things you should do with your attorney is file for a temporary restraining order and make sure that you and your children have a safe place to stay.
Domestic violence involves more than just physical harm. It can also involve:
- The threat of violence
- Making threatening phone calls or emails
- Trespassing on someone else’s property to get to a spouse
- Sexual offenses
Some attorneys will advise you to stay in your home for as long as possible as it could be a long time before you can return if you leave and file for a divorce. This may be true in some cases, but your safety should always come first. We can fight to get you back in your home, but we can’t protect you from violence if you stay where an abusive spouse can get to you.
