Domestic Violence in Clarksville, TN
Domestic violence is a serious matter and a common issue in divorce and family law cases. The unfortunate reality is that domestic violence and spousal abuse often go unreported. Our firm wants to make it clear that domestic violence should never be tolerated in any form or in any situation. We have worked on many cases involving domestic abuse and we give every effort to achieve justice for Clarksville residents who have been victimized by their partner.
If you have been subjected to domestic violence, or if you have a domestic violence issue relating to your divorce or child custody case, we urge you to bring your situation to the attention of a compassionate and understanding lawyer from our firm.
Common Types of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence can be defined as the abusive behaviors committed by one spouse or partner against another. Domestic violence can be physical or emotional, habitual or isolated, and can include a variety of behaviors and actions.
Some of the most common domestic violence issues involve:
- Physical assault
- Threats of physical violence
- Sexual abuse
- Emotional or psychological abuse
- Financial control
Domestic violence can happen to anyone, regardless of age or gender. These situations create un-healthy households and negative environments through their use of intimidation, manipulation and aggression. We firmly believe that no one deserves to be treated in this manner and we have the resources, experience and legal knowledge that can help prevent further occurrences.
If domestic violence plays a role in your divorce, there can be a large impact on the way courts determine issues involving property distribution and children. We understand dealing with all of these impersonal legal proceedings at once is no easy feat and our firm can handle them for you with precision, tact and experience that will allow you to live life as you deserve.
