Finding funding for Missouri's domestic violence shelters

24086448_S.jpgThankfully, there are a lot of shelters in Missouri that provide critically needed support in myriad forms to individuals -- both women and men -- and other family members who are victimized by domestic violence. Services range from the provision of food, shelter and crisis intervention to counseling/therapy and legal assistance.

US congressman facing domestic violence allegations

20138370_S.jpgWe have written before on our Illinois fathers' rights blog about how judges may feel they have little choice in a domestic violence case but to issue a temporary protective order against the person who has been accused -- often, the husband and father -- even in the absence of anything other than the word of the alleged victim.

Domestic violence could keep people from conceal-carry permits

19508353_S.jpgWe have mentioned on our Illinois divorce blog that allegations of domestic violence can have far-reaching effects on those who have been accused. Due to the nature of the process, law enforcement officials often don't wait to see if the charges stick or have any merit; instead, they will intervene first, sometimes willing to impinge upon the freedom -- at least temporarily -- of a person accused of domestic violence, most often a husband or boyfriend. Conventional wisdom holds that the legal issues that might arise for a person in this situation are less crucial, at least on an immediate basis, than the consequences should law enforcement fail to act.

Illinois bill aims to affect those accused of domestic violence

10287704_S.jpgDomestic violence continues to be a big problem in our society. Despite campaigns to draw awareness to the issue, Illinois residents are still often victims -- or perpetrators -- of violence at the hands of family members. The legal issues surrounding domestic abuse can be complicated and serious, owing mostly to the fact that authorities generally err on the side of caution when it comes to these kinds of cases.

Illinois cracks down on domestic violence

23550499_S.jpgTougher domestic violence laws are slated to take effect on Jan. 1 in Illinois. Under the new law, repeat offenders will face more serious charges than they currently do; all repeat offenses will be charged at the felony level. Four or more convictions can result in up to a 14-year prison sentence. As the state prepares to crack down on domestic violence in 2014, several county and city governments in Illinois also have local efforts underway.

Balloons released for domestic violence month in Illinois

7906412_s.jpgOctober is designated as Domestic Violence Month. In order to raise awareness regarding the issue, The Women's Center in Southern Illinois participated in and organized a number of events in the state. The goal was to honor domestic violence victims, while also getting the point across that domestic abuse is not just an individual's issue as it affects the entire community. Therefore, the community needs to work together to end domestic violence.

Arguing: What is healthy and unhealthy in an Illinois marriage?

20638912_s.jpgSometimes people put blinders on thinking their marriage is the only one with arguments. However, the truth is that all couples fight and argue. But it is how these couples argue that really determines how well their marriage will work or if divorce makes the most sense.
