The Effects of Domestic Violence on Divorce

Not only will a domestic violence charge and arrest affect child custody, it can also impact your child support, alimony and asset division. Criminal charges rarely have a positive impact on divorce and child custody, as one would expect.

The court system will usually award the children to the person who can provide safety, security and comfort; he or she who will provide a life in the best interest of the children. If you or your spouse is arrested for domestic violence, this will reflect badly on the safety aspect of child custody. This is especially true if charges involve violence toward, or in the presence of, the children. Sole custody may be awarded to the person not accused of domestic violence, but the accused may still be allowed visitation or supervised visitation depending on the circumstances.

Domestic violence can affect asset division and alimony depending on the relevance of the domestic violence to the specific circumstances. Additional alimony and assets are sometimes awarded to the spouse affected physically or emotionally by the abuse so much so that the victim has diminished earning power or ability to be self-supporting.

It is critical to discuss the details of any domestic violence charges, arrests or history with your attorney when you are facing a divorce. The future of your family is at stake. Let our team help you move forward with a chance at a brighter future.
