Long Island Domestic Violence Attorney

Effects of Domestic Violence on Divorce in Nassau County

The outcome of your divorce can be significantly influenced by allegations of domestic violence, whether you are the accuser or the accused. At The Virdone Law Firm, P.C. we recognize what a sensitive issue this is, and a Long Island family law attorney from our team will provide you with compassionate legal counsel and committed representation throughout the process of ending your marriage. We make it our purpose to help you find the stability and security you deserve as you move on in life.

If you have been the victim of domestic violence, you deserve to have an experienced attorney on your side, shielding you from confrontations with your former spouse and pursuing a favorable settlement. The courts in our state rule in favor of a fair and equitable distribution of marital property. Your lawyer will strive to demonstrate how the emotional, physical or sexual violence you have suffered makes it fair for you to receive a larger share of the assets. Perhaps most importantly, we can help you seek full custody and to limit visitation with the other parent to supervised contact or no contact at all. We may be able to help you secure an order of protection which will safeguard you against further harassment or abuse.

Representation for People Accused of Domestic Violence

Our firm also represents individuals who have been accused of committing domestic violence. There are unfortunately many cases on record where one spouse made such allegations falsely, with the intention of gaining the upper hand in a divorce. Your right to take part in your children's lives may be at stake, as well as the fact that you could be ordered to pay a burdensome amount of spousal support every month. We know how stressful it can be to face such serious accusations and are ready to fight to defend your rights.

Contact a Long Island domestic violence lawyer when allegations of spousal abuse stand to influence the outcome of your divorce.
