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.
