Domestic Violence Charges in Georgia

In Georgia, domestic violence is defined as physical or verbal abuse, assault, stalking, or any other form of violence committed by a family member or household member against another. 

How Can Domestic Violence Impact Family Law Cases?

Domestic violence has profound implications for family law cases, often influencing aspects such as child custody, visitation rights, and divorce settlements. Courts take allegations of domestic violence very seriously, as it fundamentally undermines the safety and wellbeing of family members, particularly children.

In child custody cases, for instance, the court will rigorously assess the environment's suitability for the child, and any evidence of domestic abuse can significantly sway the decision, often resulting in restricted visitation or loss of custody for the accused party. Similarly, in divorce proceedings, proven instances of domestic violence can impact property division and alimony. It's crucial to understand these potential impacts and to seek professional legal counsel when dealing with such sensitive matters.
