Have you recently filed for divorce and your husband is against it? Is he taking his frustrations and anger out on you with physical abuse?
Divorce brings out many emotions in the couple, including confusion, uncertainty and anger. Unfortunately, some people cannot handle divorce and resort to violence against ex-spouses. When a divorce involves physical abuse, you do not have to put up with it – there is help for you and your children.
The Department of Justice has determined that domestic violence affects more than 10% of the population in this country – more than 30,000 people. The same study discovered that women are especially vulnerable to violence from an intimate partner.
If you are a victim of domestic violence, get away from your ex-spouse as quickly as possible. Once you are safe, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who will help you protect yourself and your children. No one has the right to put their hands on another individual.
