Domestic violence victims can find security from Missouri law

Thumbnail image for 23473967_S.jpgDomestic violence is one of the most horrific and terrifying issues that can arise in a relationship. It can undermine the fundamental feeling of safety and security in an individual's life. Victims of domestic violence don't feel safe in their own homes, and if there are children in the relationship, the violence can extend to the children as well. As frightening as domestic violence is, victims must find the courage to stop it before it is too late.

Study highlights lack of support for domestic abuse victims

21924128_S.jpgSuffering from any form of violence or abuse is difficult to bear and can cause lasting physical and emotional damage. Sadly, many people experience abuse at the hands of people they know and care for, even within their own homes. In Missouri and throughout the United States, the number of victims of domestic violence seeking assistance each day is alarming. Even more concerning is the lack of resources available to help victims.

It can be difficult to recognize or admit to the signs of domestic violence and even harder to break away from it. In an attempt to combat this, a nursing professor from the University of Missouri has joined a team of researchers working on an app to help people in violent relationships.

Domestic violence laws in Missouri could strengthen

Thumbnail image for 14755097_S.jpgDomestic violence is a horrible thing to suffer through. In today's tough society, everyone should have at least one place where they can feel safe and secure, and that place for most people would be their home. However, some people are at even more danger in their homes than out in the world. For some people who are subjected to domestic violence, their home becomes a prison from which there is seemingly no escape.

Domestic violence is widespread

21924165_S.jpgDomestic violence appears to also have affected individuals from all ages as victims in one Missouri shelter were anywhere from 14 to 70-years in age.  While women go to this shelter to escape an abusive situation, part of the funding for this shelter comes from a fashion show that is put on.  The event helped raise $43,000 for the shelter.

Domestic violence accusation leads to job resignation

20081754_S.jpgRecently, a high school hockey coach resigned after a complaint was made to the district about previously being investigated for domestic abuse.

Ochocinco jailed in domestic violence case

Whether the accusation is true or false -- these types of charges can really come back to bite someone, especially when it comes to child custody and visitation issues. Basically, if a judge believes a mother or father is dangerous, this could weigh heavy when it comes to making custodial decisions. 

Domestic abuse can turn into order of protection in Missouri

And while he claims the incident is something he and his wife are going to work through, in the meantime a special prosecutor is going to be deciding just how the case will be handled.
