Relevance of domestic violence in child custody cases

During child custody cases, family courts in Massachusetts take allegations of domestic violence very seriously. They do not want to put a child in a dangerous situation. Courts will consider several factors when there are allegations of domestic violence, including the frequency and severity of the acts of violence, whether the accused person currently poses a danger to the other parent or child and whether there are criminal charges pending against the accused.

How can a Massachusetts domestic violence victim get protection?

Domestic abuse is a serious offense. If you are experiencing violence at home, you have a legal right to protection. You may be able to get a restraining order—known as an abuse prevention order—to protect you and/or your children.
