Is Your Child’s Safety At Risk In A Divorce Battle?

When children are involved in a divorce, emotions can become sky­high. Not only can a child’s mental health be at stake in a divorce, but also their physical well-­being.

Having a Seattle divorce lawyer backing you is nothing short of imperative. We can fight for not only your rights but also those of your child or children, many of whom oftentimes are caught in the middle.

Child Abuse In A Divorce

In the event you suspect your soon­-to-­be ex­-spouse or someone they are dating has abused one or more of your children, a Seattle lawyer experienced with domestic violence cases can defend you and your child.

When you meet with a domestic violence lawyer in Seattle, be sure to provide them with the following:

  • Any evidence showing your child or children was physically or mentally abused. This can include not only photos or video of bruises and scratches (see more below), but also any recorded statements from inside and outside the home, etc.
  • Any statement from a doctor, psychologist, teacher, etc. indicating your child was mentally or physically harmed by your spouse.
  • Any evidence indicating your child has been acting out against others in retaliation for being abused by a spouse. In some cases, the child will pick fights at school with classmates or talk back to adults.
  • Any evidence pointing to the fact your child or children want nothing to do with the alleged abuser. They may be hesitant to go spend time with your spouse when it is his or her turn to have the children.
