Domestic Violence Archives

Husband may have been victim of domestic battery

2925979_s.jpgWhen talking about domestic abuse, many tend to assume the victim is a woman -- either a wife or a girlfriend -- and that the abuser is a man -- either the husband or boyfriend. And while these scenarios certainly do play out, it is important to keep in mind that men can also be the victims of domestic abuse.

Should police run criminal checks on domestic abuse victims?

Criminal Background Check.jpgAs a society, we tend to focus on domestic violence from the standpoint of a wife or girlfriend being abused. And while there are certainly plenty of cases where in abusive relationships this is the case, it is also important to keep in mind that abuse can go both ways and that there are plenty of husbands and boyfriends who are in abusive relationships.

Jury does not believe allegations; father awarded custody

18143511_s.jpgIf you are an Illinois father getting ready to go through a divorce, be prepared for the fact that your ex-wife may attempt to make up completely preposterous stories in order to get the upper hand in court. This can be anything from abuse allegations to having a history with drugs. All of these allegations, if not properly defended against, can have an impact on child custody and visitation.

Father owed more than $30,000 in child support

When talking about child support, people tend to always think it's the father who pays to the mother. However, the truth is that there are plenty of Illinois men who have custody of their children and who receive child support from an ex-wife or ex-girlfriend. And, just like in any child support situation, it can surely get frustrating if the paying parent stops making their child support payments.

Safe zones for child custody exchanges

For parents with particularly contentious relationships, drop off and pick up times for custody and visitation exchanges can be quite challenging. Especially in situations where there is the threat -- or perceived threat -- of domestic violence, parents want to make sure they are safe and so are their children.

Supervised visitation sometimes an option for Illinois parents

Every parent has the right to a relationship with their child. Even in cases where the parents are going through a nasty divorce full of domestic abuse allegations, children should still be able to spend time with both of their parents.
