What Can Divorce Lawyers Do to Help Domestic Violence Victims?

Posted on: October 24th, 2017 by admin

Recently, People magazine featured a story on celebrity Audrina Patridge who joined the ranks of many other domestic violence victims who have been forced to file for divorce from their abuser. In the case of Patridge, she claims that she has had to deal with multiple instances of violent outbursts and emotional abuse from her husband of 10 months, Corey Bohan.

One instance Patridge described in the article involved Corey following around their home, being aggressive and cursing at her repeatedly because she would not reveal who had told her that he was allegedly cheating on her with another woman. As this was all going on, she had the couple’s 1-year-old daughter in her arms. When she attempted to leave with the little girl, Corey reportedly locked the door and pushed her back into the room. At that point, Audrina pleaded with Corey to let her take their daughter to stay with relatives, so that she did not have to be around while they had this argument. She alleges Corey grabbed her purse and backpack and threw them on the floor, punched himself in the head and then punched a hole in the wall. After that, he let her pass, but then raced down the stairs in front of her and threatened to do harm to himself if they left. Audrina called her father to come over after that. Before her dad arrived Corey left.

According to the article in People, Audrina feared for the safety of her daughter and herself if she filed for divorce without first getting a restraining order against Corey, which she was able to do in mid-September.

Why Should Domestic Violence Victims Talk to a Divorce Lawyer?

Domestic violence victims need to get away from their abusers as soon as possible. Speaking to a divorce lawyer about their situation can help accelerate the process of getting abused spouses and their children to safety. Divorce attorneys are experienced in dealing with these types of situations, and have often helped many others file restraining orders and file for divorce from abusive spouses.

The experienced divorce attorneys at Hoover Krepelka, LLP have been ensuring that domestic violence victims are protected and get the help they need to separate from abusive spouses for decades, including assisting with filing temporary and permanent restraining orders as well as helping them file for divorce.

Using Text And Email Messages in San Jose Divorce Proceedings

Posted on: June 8th, 2016 by admin

 

Although some San Jose divorce situations may be amicable, many are not. Contention runs high, tempers flare, and harsh words and accusations are exchanged. Many individuals involved in heated divorces have questions on whether text and email messages can be used in court against the other party. The answer is maybe.

Often times, people think that text and email messages are not admissible in court. Hearsay is an out of court statement offered to prove the truth of the matter asserted. Not every email and text message is hearsay. Even if a text or statement in an email is considered hearsay, there may be an exception to the hearsay exclusionary rule, in which case, the email or text message may come in. If you have concerns whether specific text messages or email messages may or may not be admissible, speak to a San Jose divorce lawyer to discuss your circumstances.

If you are a party to a divorce it is best to avoid contact with the other party unless absolutely necessary. If contact is about dissolution proceedings you should let your San Jose divorce lawyer handle the issue and contact the other party if required.
