False Allegations Of Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence As Divorce Strategy

Some spouses will stop at nothing to exact revenge on their other half, even using accusations of domestic violence as a strategy to deny child custody. False allegations are a crime in Washington, punishable with a maximum penalty of 364 days in jail and fines up to $5,000. If you are the subject of false allegations of domestic violence, contact me. I have three decades of experience as a family lawyer in Kent, and I can defend you.

Spousal Abuse In Divorce Cases

Spousal abuse frequently raises its ugly head when one spouse wants to divorce another. Suddenly, an irritant such as unwanted touching can become fourth-degree domestic assault. Your spouse may file for a no-contact or restraining order. The orders are meant to protect the victims of domestic violence; unfortunately, they also have the effect of depriving you of the right to be with your family. As your attorney, I can work toward getting these orders modified or dismissed.

Spousal Abuse: The Other Side Of The Coin

Restraining orders, no-contact orders, protection orders and anti-harassment orders are also some of the tools I use to stop spousal abuse. These tools can be used to keep your violent partner away from your or your children and help build a history demonstrating his or her violent behavior. You don't have to stay in a relationship that is scarred by physical or emotional abuse.
