Domestic violence can have devastating physical and psychological effects on the victim. Soon, a pattern of abuse begins and it becomes difficult to get out. If you are in an abusive relationship, we encourage you to contact the police immediately.
At The Jimenez Law Firm, P.C., our Lewisville family violence lawyers have provided professional guidance to many individuals who were getting out of abusive relationships, but we need your help. If you are being abused — physically or verbally — you must act to get yourself out of the situation.
- Call the police
- Have photos taken of your injuries
- Seek out witnesses
- Seek the help and protection of a shelter
Denton County Domestic Violence Lawyer
The longer you live in this type of relationship, the harder it makes it for us to help you. It might be difficult, or even embarrassing, to seek help in these situations, but it is the right thing to do for you and your children. In fact, in a divorce, a history of family violence can limit the other party's access to children. If your spouse has been convicted of domestic violence in the two years prior to filing for divorce, he or she cannot be appointed as a joint managing conservator. In these instances, we can help you gain possession of the house, the children and any other assets or properties. Most importantly, we can keep you and your children out of an abusive home.
Seek professional help from either the police or an experienced attorney immediately. Only then can you break the cycle and protect yourself.
