Child Custody in Domestic Violence Cases

Because custody cases are complicated and can turn into a legal battle quickly, it is important to have an attorney ready to represent you. Our team at the Center for Mediated Divorce has successfully handled numerous child custody cases before. With our extensive background in domestic violence and custody law, we can help you secure your rights to your children after you have left your abuser.

In all child custody cases, judges make their decision based on what is in the “best interest of the child.” This is determined by a number of different factors, inducing:

  • The child’s safety
  • The child’s emotional, social, and educational needs
  • The home environment of each party
  • The child’ preference and relationship to each parent

Due to the nature of your domestic violence case, a judge is likely to not award the abusing spouse or parent custody. However, an abuser may try to claim that they have not committed domestic violence or other forms of abuse in order to keep custody. In that situation, our domestic violence attorneys in Irvine can help you prove that they have indeed caused you or your children harm.

Domestic Violence does NOT require actual physical violence. Domestic Violence may be verbal and emotional abuse, as well as economic abuse, where the abuser controls the victim by not allowing any financial independence. Often Domestic Violence is a combination of the above factors -- sometimes with physical abuse; and sometimes without the physical abuse.

There are numerous resources in Orange County for victims of Domestic Violence, including confidential residential housing so that the victim can remain safe while pursuing legal Restraining Orders. These Shelters often provide counseling and a safe haven until the victim can become self-supporting.

Our Domestic Violence attorneys are well aware of such shelters and assist clients in every way possible so that they will remain safe during the legal proceedings.
