Claims of domestic violence may impact parental rights

Last week this Tennessee family law blog discussed the important topic of orders of protection and how they may be issued by the courts. Generally, an order of protection may be issued if a court finds that a person is the victim of alleged domestic violence and is in need of support to avoid continuing problems with their alleged aggressor. However, last week's post also noted that not every order of protection that is issued is based off of good information and that issues can arise for individuals who have been wrongfully identified as domestic violence aggressors.

For example, if a person is subject to restrictions based on an order of protection, they may be limited in how they may interact with their children. They may be prohibited from spending alone time with their kids, or if the allegations against them are very serious, they may be prohibited from having any contact with them at all. Even if the allegations on which the protective order is based are faulty, a parent may still have their rights curtailed when it comes to their kids.

Attorney Sam Byrd fights for men and women who have been identified as domestic violence aggressors and who fear that their parental rights may be impacted by wrongful claims of abuse. His knowledge of both the civil and criminal laws of the state can be of benefit to his clients as they look to manage their familial responsibilities all while defending themselves from wrongful accusations.

Information about attorney Sam Byrd and his Tennessee-based law practice can be found online. Domestic violence claims can be damaging on many levels for individuals and his firm is prepared to support new clients who are affected by accusations of abuse and harm.
