Franklin County Domestic Violence Arrest Defense Attorney
There are a number of different causes of heated spousal arguments . Alcohol and drug abuse, money issues, infidelity, work related stress and various child-rearing issues all contribute to a situation where one may become loud or violent.
A pending divorce case where spouses are technically separated but living together is a common precursor to domestic violence. Very often one person will admit that they don’t love the other anymore and wants to initiate a divorce while the other wants to keep the marriage together and work things out.
Child support and visitation issues in Franklin County are a third common cause of domestic violence. When spouses ask for changes in a prior agreed upon child support and child visitation schedule, disagreements and arguments can occur.
These are just a few brief examples where domestic violence can occur. It is important to add that domestic violence need not be physical. Often domestic violence stemming from drug and alcohol abuse will result in a spouse threatening violence in a convincing fashion.
