Domestic Violence Archives

Domestic violence is a crime

15252312_S.jpgDomestic violence is often considered a family law issue, and while you should absolutely consult with a family law attorney to help you with your domestic violence issue, it is important to remember that, unlike many family law issues that are civil suits, domestic violence is a crime. This means that a person who is engaging in domestic violence can be accused of a criminal lawsuit and even arrested.

Defending against false domestic violence allegations

14657045_S.jpgMake no mistake: domestic violence is a serious issue that affects far too many Missouri residents. The fear of going home and facing violent behavior can be crippling, and even if victims are eventually able to distance themselves from their abuser, the long-lasting psychological effects can detrimentally affect their lives for years. However, a similar sentiment can be expressed for those who have been wrongfully accused of domestic violence.

Protective orders can help victims of domestic abuse

47578031_S.jpgThere are few circumstances that can truly match the fear and anguish brought upon by domestic abuse. For many people, it is simply impossible to imagine that the idea of home, the place that should be safe and relaxing, is more like a torturous prison. People often tell victims to simply walk away, as though it were as easy as packing up and moving out. However, victims often feel threatened and worry about their own safety and the safety of their loved ones if they leave.

Begin defending yourself against domestic abuse right now

14527942_S.jpgWhen it comes to domestic violence, we understand the urgency of the situation and that timing is everything. Victims of domestic abuse endure some of the most traumatic and unimaginable circumstances on a daily basis, and securing legal protection as soon as possible is critical to their mental and physical health. More importantly, if a domestic abuser discovers that his or her victim has pursued legal action, the consequences could be fatal, making it even more important that victims get the help they need fast.

Protect yourself from domestic violence before it's too late

28831567_S.jpgThere is almost nobody in the country that would try to defend the actions of a domestic abuser. For most people, even if they have never experienced domestic abuse directly, there are few things more terrifying than the thought that going back to your home, the place where you should be safe, able to escape from the world, is more like walking into your own personal hell. Worse yet is the fear that you have no options, that you are stuck suffering the abuse for the rest of your life.

Legal aid for Missouri domestic violence victims

20081754_S.jpgDomestic violence is one of the most serious and tragic issues that a person can endure. Being mistreated emotionally, psychologically, physically or in any other capacity in your own home, likely by someone you trust or love, can be an extremely traumatic experience. That kind of betrayal makes the act even more frightening, and feeling unsafe in your home can take a serious toll on your mental well-being. You will likely become more stressed, and the inability to focus may impact your daily life.

Child abuse is a serious crime in Missouri

15783113_S.jpgWhen most people think of domestic violence, they imagine spouses in a heated argument, and usually the assumption is that the man eventually loses control and strikes the woman. This is a fairly common and frighteningly accurate idea of domestic violence, but there is much more to domestic violence than a man beating a woman, or even a woman beating a man. In some extremely tragic instances, there are children involved in the incident as well.

Woman who allegedly ran over her boyfriend set to face trial

20612432_S.jpgWhen most people think of domestic violence, they imagine the man as the aggressor, with the woman being physically or emotionally traumatized by a cruel significant other. While this is certainly the case in some instances, it is important to remember that anyone can be the victim of domestic abuse, and women can certainly cause serious injuries if they want to, especially if they have a weapon of some kind, such as a bus.

Nearly half of domestic violence cases are unassisted

31829326_S.jpgWe often talk about how serious Missouri treats domestic violence, and we recently reported on a state congressman who is taking steps to increase resources devoted to reducing domestic violence and assisting victims. New statistics indicate that this help cannot come quickly enough, as many shelters are struggling to provide the necessary assistance for domestic violence victims. Whether it is employees being released or lack of funding, the fact is that many individuals are unable to receive the help they need.

Congressman hopes to assist domestic violence shelters

25405972_S.jpgDomestic violence continues to be a large issue that too many people suffer from throughout the country. The state of Missouri takes domestic violence very seriously, and even though our state has taken great strides to help victims of domestic violence, there is always more that can be done. In fact, it sometimes seems that as hard as we fight to help domestic violence, there continues to be an increase in domestic violence issues.
