Divorce and Domestic Violence

Terrence Thomas, accused of killing wife, will appear in court - Action News 5 - Memphis, Tennessee
It is not uncommon for people going through divorces to also get charged with domestic violence.  This can happen for two reasons:

1.  They are already in a physically abusive relationship.

2.  The other party is playing games and attempting to gain favorable ground in the divorce.  Living together during divorce proceedings makes the likelihood of arrest on a domestic violence case increase.

The relationship has already turned sour and if there has been physical abuse, anger from the proceedings will escalate.  Do not become a victim of crime or a victim of a spouse playing games.

If you are going through a divorce, you need to move out of the house.  It is expensive going through these proceedings, but it is easier to ask for help from family and friends rather than face arrest or harm to yourself.  During the holidays, anger and sadness are more present during a nasty divorce or break-up.  Alcohol can fuel these feelings and people make mistakes.  If you are arrested for a domestic violence case, you need to hire counsel immediately.
