DOMESTIC VIOLENCE & DIVORCE

Dallas-Fort Worth Domestic Violence Divorce Attorneys

Regardless of age, gender, race, religion or financial status, domestic violence (sometimes referred to as family abuse or spousal abuse) is a common issue in many Texas divorce and family law cases. 
 
Domestic violence can include:

  • Physical abuse

  • Neglect

  • Emotional, psychological, or verbal abuse

  • Financial abuse 

  • Sexual abuse


Unfortunately, it is all too common for abusive spouses to manipulate their victims into not filing for divorce which is often achieved by using tactics like gaslighting, blackmail, financial withholding threats, or other psychological approaches. 

If you or your children are victims of domestic abuse and you are considering divorce, it is important for you to reach out to an experienced domestic abuse divorce attorney to discuss options for immediately protecting you and your family.

In addition, we have contacts within the greater Dallas community who specialize in domestic violence sheltering/protection and support. If you or any of your family members are victims of domestic violence, we urge you to seek support.
