When facing a divorce, it is not uncommon for emotions to flare. If you are afraid that those emotions might escalate to physicality, you should consult.
The Law Office of Daryl T. Gordon has more than 27 years of experience helping clients, both men and women, protect themselves from violence during the course of a divorce case. It is a natural response to not want to call attention to family violence. Many people are ashamed, embarrassed or simply afraid of the potential for more violence.
In Texas, the court system can issue protective orders that place a great deal of restrictions on the other party, including:
- Limiting how close your spouse can get to you at home, school or work
- Restricting communication from your spouse either by phone, text or mutual friend
If you have been subjected to the threat of physical harm or suffered actual physical harm while fighting through a divorce, contact our office immediately.
In spousal abuse situations, it often comes down to he said/she said. It is important to get your attorney and law enforcement involved as soon as possible. Conversely, it is unwise to accuse your spouse of threatening you with physical harm in an effort to strengthen your case in the divorce proceeding.
