Domestic Violence: When you partner with Easterling Law to advocate for you regarding the Domestic Violence that you have experienced, we hope that you will feel empowered and overcome the cycle of violence. Safety should be considered before any decisions are made regarding a family law issue. Statistics show that one of the most dangerous times for a victim of Domestic Violence is when they are trying to leave the relationship. Please seek assistance from your local shelter for counseling services and safety plans if you believe this is something that is happening to you.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence:  Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically; however, the one constant component of domestic violence is one partner’s consistent efforts to maintain power and control over the other.

Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. It is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is only a fraction of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and in severe cases, even death. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.
