Claims of domestic violence can affect your legal rights

The members of Tennessee families often love each other with great passion. Additionally, from time to time they may also fight with great passion, and allow their disagreements to boil over into matches of anger and frustration. Ups and downs are a natural part of living with others and sharing one's life with the people they love.

While many people celebrate the highs of their familial relationships they may in turn shy away from discussing the details of their struggles and challenges. They may not wish to bring to light the problems they experience with their spouses and kids, and they may not wish to discuss their personal lives with others.

However, there is one specific scenario when a person should strongly consider speaking with a family law attorney about problems in their domestic unit: when they have been accused of committing domestic violence. Domestic violence is a very serious matter that alleges an abuser harmed a relative through physical, sexual, emotional or mental abuse. Claims of domestic violence can attach unfair stigmas to individuals who have been wrongly accused and can threaten the rights individuals have in their families.

A person charged with domestic violence may lose custody of their kids or may be subject to an unwarranted restraining order that may limit their contact with their spouse. The manners in which domestic violence claims can wreak havoc on Tennessee residents' lives is alarming. Readers who have found themselves facing claims of domestic violence by their loved ones may want to contact an attorney. For example, the legal team at the Law Office of Sam Byrd practices in an around Chattanooga, and offers clients guidance concerning the domestic violence claims pending against them.
