Protect Yourself During Divorce

Even absent of safety concerns, divorce is one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. When dealing with a potentially violent spouse or ex-spouse, the stress is exponentially greater. Knowing how to protect yourself during divorce and your children from physical or psychological abuse is of primary importance. It is critical to know your options when faced with a violent or potentially violent partner.

If you feel your spouse is capable of violence against you or your children, or even your pets, then you must do whatever is necessary to ensure everyone’s safety during divorce. If you are in imminent danger, contact the police and seek shelter with a friend, family member or domestic violence shelter immediately. If you feel your spouse is capable of violence but don’t feel as though you or your children are in imminent danger, please find someplace to live that your spouse cannot find out about, and if you need to send your children to live with family out of state, ask your lawyer what legal steps, if any, you must take to get them to a safe destination.

If you are ready to get started or have questions about how to protect yourself during divorce, request a consultation with a domestic violence specialist at the Harris Law Firm today.
