Domestic Abuse

Helping you navigate domestic abuse with caring and compassion.

Domestic ViolenceDomestic abuse is extremely serious in the state of Florida.  Whether you are the victim or have been accused of domestic abuse, you need immediate help.  We understand the urgency of your situation and we are ready to help you navigate the choices you have to protect yourself and to protect your children.  The domestic violence injunctive process is different than any other domestic or criminal case.  You must be quickly prepared because the domestic violence procedures are both extensive and accelerated. Additionally, domestic violence can have an immediate effect on time sharing with children. Moving forward with divorce in the Collaborative Process is possible under certain circumstances even if there is a history of domestic abuse.

The Collaborative Law Process provides options for families who have experienced domestic
abuse. Rule 4-1.19 Rules Regulating the Florida Bar, provides that a lawyer may represent a
client in the Collaborative Process if:

  • The client requests to begin or continue the collaborative law process; and
  • The lawyer reasonably believes that the safety of the client can be protected during
    the Collaborative Law Process.
