Our attorneys know that domestic violence (DV) encompasses far more than physical abuse. We’re familiar with power dynamics and know that emotional, psychological, and financial abuse are all forms of violence against domestic partners. We have walked this road with many clients and are well-versed in dealing with all forms of abuser, including narcissistic abusers. We won’t be pushed around, and we will negotiate for safety and fairness on your behalf.
Our Attorneys Work With Both Sides of Domestic Violence:
- Proving when domestic violence and/or child abuse has occurred – With the insight of former district attorneys, our Broomfield family law attorneys have a deep understanding of how to establish incidents or patterns of DV and abuse. We also know how to help survivors take swift action through the courts. We will obtain the orders survivors need to protect their own and their children’s safety and well-being. These orders can include temporary or permanent protection orders, child custody orders and more.
- Defending those falsely accused of domestic violence and/or child abuse – Unfortunately, not all allegations of domestic violence and child abuse are true. In fact, all too commonly, those involved in divorce or custody battles may raise false accusations. Whether these are motivated by bitterness or an effort to gain leverage in a case, our Broomfield family law attorneys can help the wrongly accused refute false allegations, clear their good names and avoid losing ground in divorce and/or custody cases.
A first step along the road to legal action against an abuser OR being falsely accused is calling an attorney. Our attorneys will listen and will begin to make a plan with you for safely exiting the relationship.
The second step is documenting what’s happening. Documenting will empower you to recognize what’s been happening, and will help you to prove it in court. For help, please refer to our article on documenting.
Oftentimes, you may have an abusive partner and not even realize it. If you aren’t sure whether your partner is abusive, we encourage you to start by looking at the Power and Control Wheel (English version) (Spanish version).
