Coeur d’Alene Spousal Abuse and Family Law Lawyer

Serving Coeur d’Alene & Kootenai County areas, including Coeur d’Alene ▪ Hayden

Domestic violence creates difficult practical, legal and emotional complications in a marriage and a family. Domestic violence is the only reason for which a spouse may be compelled to leave the family home before a property division settlement has been reached. Perhaps this is one reason that some spouses make false accusations of domestic violence.

Whether you are the person accused of spousal assault or the alleged victim in a domestic violence situation, you are strongly urged to seek the counsel of an experienced family law lawyer as early in the situation as possible.

Contact the Advocacy Law Center, PLLC in Coeur d’Alene to discuss factors that you may not have considered when you or your spouse called the police to complain of physical or emotional abuse, including the following:

  • Criminal defense needs after a domestic violence arrest or accusation
  • The effects of a domestic violence incident on the spouses’ right to remain in the marital home
  • The effects of domestic violence on child custody orders
  • Restraining orders that may be necessary or advisable to prevent further harm to family members.

Keep in mind that spousal abuse does not necessarily mean that an abusive parent will also abuse children. O.J. Simpson was reported to be a good father in spite of his record of spousal abuse. A family law attorney who is a strong advocate as well as an empathetic supporter is a valuable resource for someone going through a domestic violence situation at home — either false accusations or confirmed incidents of harm inflicted on a wife by a husband or vice versa.

At the Advocacy Law Center, PLLC, we enjoy a high rate of client satisfaction. Our clients appreciate the fact that we care, we listen and we take action as needed to protect their legal rights. We know that “non-legal” aspects of a family law matter are as important to the people involved as legal issues are.
