Filing for Divorce and Child Custody in an Abusive Situation

Posted on May 4, 2010 by Hofheimer Family Law

Facing the uncertainties of your Virginia divorce and child custody case is difficult for any woman, but facing those challenges with an abusive partner puts a life or death strain on an already tense situation.

You can triumph over your abusive husband and break free of his ill-will toward you and your children. With an appropriately experienced Virginia divorce attorney at your side, you can work within the system to get your freedom and begin a healthier life with your children.

Equally important is accepting the flaws inherent in a legal system that blindfolds Lady Justice in efforts to do no harm from bias. It can be a bitter pill to swallow now, but one day, this pillar of justice may rightfully serve in your favor.

Until then, you and your Virginia divorce attorney must vigilantly work in unison to help the Virginia child custody judge see things from your point of view by way of admissible evidence in his or her courtroom.
