Seek Immediate Help
In cases of domestic violence, it is critical to seek immediate help. Oftentimes, victims wait or fail to report an incident, thinking that a violent attack was a one-time occurrence. In these situations, violence can escalate, placing you or your child in further danger. Failing to report domestic violence may make your claim harder to prove once a divorce or custody position has been filed.
If you are fearful for yours or your child’s safety, you should find a safe place to stay and contact the police. Once you are in a secure location, contact Samera, and she can petition the court for an emergency restriction to help ensure your protection.
Understanding Domestic Violence
Domestic violence is a form of long-term intimidation imposed by one partner onto another. To maintain control, an abusive partner may resort to physical violence, psychological abuse, and sexual assault. Long-term abuse is distinct from an isolated incident, which may occur when one partner either threatens to or commits physical harm on a single occasion. Often, domestic violence intensifies over a period of months or years, so it is important to take action immediately.
Samera works with a team of professionals who can thoroughly investigate the situation and gather evidence to establish a strong case. We can look for patterns of domestic violence, reviewing police reports and any other forms of documented abuse you may have.
If you fear you or your child is in danger, contact S.H. Law Solutions P.C. as soon as possible, and our team can take swift legal action.
Because abuse and financial control often coincide, many victims lack the financial means to remove themselves from an abusive relationship. However, Samera will work tirelessly to ensure that you and your child's needs and best interests are met.
