Domestic violence, sometimes referred to as "spousal abuse" or "child abuse," is not limited to divorces. If you are charged with domestic violence, you should seek advice and assistance from a criminal defense lawyer. In the case of a divorce, there are often two separate hearings, a criminal hearing and a family law hearing. For the criminal hearing, you need counsel from an attorney who has extensive experience with the criminal aspect of domestic violence.
