As a family law firm, we often see charges of domestic violence when a couple is either on the verge of divorce or is in the divorce process. Sometimes a spouse will use a charge of domestic violence as a weapon to hurt the other partner, or as a wedge to drive the children into one parent’s custody. At other times, when tension and stress is high, an incident will occur that would not normally occur, and one or both parties may be at fault.
