When domestic violence occurs in the home, many victims fear the loss of their home and their family. More often than not, the abuser controls the marital property and the income, which leaves victim feeling helpless and unable to leave. Threats of further abuse generally prevent the victim from seeking help as well. Abusers can be both men and women and children are often caught in the middle as well.

You will need to know what your rights are and how to protect them. You will also need to immediately be made aware of your options so that you can get yourself and your children out of a dangerous situation.
A lot of domestic violence criminal cases do not go to trial. If the facts are against you the attorneys talk about the truths and make a plea bargain. A district court judge examines the case to choose if there is probable cause to support the charge. If the truths are in your favor, your case will need to be prepared for trial before the district lawyer reviews the information.
When there is physical or mental abuse in the home, legal action must be taken immediately, especially if children are involved.
