How Does Domestic Violence Affect My Family Law Case?MediaBeast2022-07-26T18:51:00+00:00
If you are the victim of domestic violence, you may file for a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) to receive protection from further abuse. The TRO may become permanent if circumstances call for it. On the other hand, if you are accused of domestic violence, you may be subject to tight restrictions on your lifestyle and whereabouts until the order is dropped, unless it becomes permanent. In either case, the bottom line is that a domestic violence accusation may impact child custody, support, and spousal support, among other issues in a divorce or other family law case.

Florida is an equitable distribution state, meaning that any property you and your spouses acquired during the marriage (called “marital property”) is subject to equitable division. Don’t confuse ”equitable” with “equal,” however, as equitable distribution means property will be divided fairly and equally among both spouses. As such, there is no guarantee that your marital property will be divided 50/50.
