We all go through life believing that, at least for the most part we are justified in our actions and behaviors, and at times we even think it's acceptable to raise the bar on aggressive behavior in our homes.
Of course in the perfect world, none of this is true and society norms are such that domestic violence is the great evil perpetrated by men against women and children.
In the real world, each of us has been guilty of some form of domestic violence during our lives and none of us is any more or less at risk of perpetrating or becoming a victim of domestic violence than any other person or party to a proceedings, regardless of our gender or age.
Family Law Investigations can help you assess the evidence available to you or that you have been asked to explain during a proceeding.
If you have been served with a Domestic Violence and Family Protection Order you will no doubt be affronted by the mere suggestion that you are a violent person. None of us easily admits to it, but the truth is each of us has committed domestic violence at some time and it is always a healthy choice to get meaningful help, not token relief.
The assistance you need is to explain your actions in a manner that is most likely to assist a Court to reach a just conclusion and one that ensures the best interests of any child remain the paramount concern.
Conversely, if you are the victim of domestic violence, sometimes it can be difficult to know where to turn and this is another issue Family Law Investigations can assist you with.
