Escaping a Marriage of Domestic Violence

Q: How can a domestic violence victim get a divorce?

There are many reasons that make one or both spouses consider getting a divorce. While state laws differ, most states including Arizona are no-fault divorce states. That means they do not require a party who wants a divorce to show that the other was at fault or caused the divorce. All the spouse who wants a divorce needs to do is allege when filing for divorce that the marriage is "irretrievably broken with no reasonable prospect for reconciliation”. (One very rare exception to the no-fault rule is in a covenant marriage divorce, which only represents about 1% of Arizona divorces.)

But the fact but you can file for an Arizona divorce for any or no reason, doesn't necessarily make it easy. Going from “I do” to “I'm done” often evokes a flood of emotions and stress as one household is divided into two, especially if minor children are involved. Issues such as property division and spousal support must be navigated and if there are minor children, child custody, visitation and support can be difficult to work out.

Unfortunately, some people are in situations where they may want to divorce but are too afraid to pursue it.

Domestic violence attorneys can help protect and obtain compensation for domestic violence victims who are ready to stop the abuse and move forward with a healthy, new life. Some of the legal assistance may include:

Macaroni and cheese is the quintessential comfort food.

Bullets in the Bathroom

Must domestic violence result in a physical injury?

Poor aim in the bathroom stories usually relate to men or boys, well, missing their marks and are told in frustration by the wives and moms charged with cleaning up after them.

So even Arizona domestic violence attorneys raised an eyebrow when they heard the tale out of Goodyear, of a wife who was arrested for allegedly firing two shots at her husband-- as he sat on the toilet.

Winning a Custody Battle

Q: What happens if I have to fight for custody of my child?

Sometimes, when people separate or divorce in Phoenix, they are able to amicably work through the necessary steps of dividing their assets, parting ways and moving on with their lives. But when a couple shares children, the break is not as “clean” because the couple will remain tied to each other on some level by co-parenting those children.
