One of those elements is the presence of domestic violence. In far too many instances, children are exposed to violence in their home, which can have a tremendous impact on them. Here are just some of the ways that exposure to domestic violence can impact your child:
That list looks daunting, and it truly is. Exposure to domestic violence can deeply disrupt your child’s life and affect him or her for years, perhaps even decades to come. We know you don’t want that to happen.
You can take legal action to limit your child’s exposure to an abusive parent. To do so, you’ll need to present evidence that demonstrates why a child custody modification is appropriate. But if domestic violence is present, then you’ll probably be able to gather witness testimony, mental health opinions, and police reports to support your position.
We know that the process can seem scary, but your child’s safety and wellbeing is on the line. Be thorough, be diligent, and take a stand for your child.
