Where Domestic Violence And Family Law Intersect

Divorce, child custody and other family law cases are far too often mixed with allegations of domestic violence or child neglect. It is crucial to resolve these issues in a way that protects the rights of all involved and, most importantly, protects the well-being of children.

At the Law Offices of Sheara F. Friend, we combine decades of experience with legal savvy and compassion for our clients. You can rely on us to guide you through this difficult time in your life and to help create the best possible future for your family.

Representing The Accused

We will always advocate for your rights, seeking to limit your exposure to harsh penalties and making sure the accusations do not undercut your parental and property rights. It is not uncommon for a fight where parents are violent with each other to result in one parent attempting to leverage the situation to benefit their standing a divorce or custody case. The removal of a parent from the family home is a drastic measure that should not be used as a weapon.

Representing Victims Of Domestic Violence

The safety of you and your children is the number one priority. The first step is getting a restraining order in place and/or investigating accusations of child neglect. Once everyone’s safety has been provided for, we can focus on filing for divorce and pursuing your interests in family court. This includes resolving issues such as child custody, property division and child support.
