What Does Domestic Assault Look Like?
Domestic violence occurs in all types of relationships and in all households. Victims and perpetrators can include blood relatives, romantic partners, friends and acquaintances who reside in the same house or who share a close relationship with one another. Domestic abuse can include:
- Physical or verbal threats
- Physical abuse
- Sexual assault
If you or a family member has been the victim of domestic violence, we can help you seek out support services that can help protect you from a dangerous situation. We can also let you know how a domestic assault incident is liable to affect your divorce or child custody proceeding.
When False Claims Are Made
Unfortunately, some people make false claims of domestic abuse in an effort to gain an advantage in divorce or child custody proceedings. In these cases, it is essential to protect your rights by seeking legal assistance as soon as possible. The mere allegation of domestic violence can result in almost immediate consequences, including removal from your home and the loss of your right to see your children.

“Mr. Ogden was so kind and understanding! He spent three hours helping me figure out what to do during our consultation in order to get custody of our niece and nephew, and when our hearing date came and the hearing officer wanted to reschedule us (which would have caused us to pay more), he went in and argued for us, and we were seen that day! I knew exactly what to do and what was going to happen in the hearing too, so there were no surprises. Everything went great and now we have custody of our niece and nephew! We hope to have Mr. Ogden help us with adoption next!!”
