If you are a victim of domestic violence, it is important to seek legal help as soon as possible. A Tampa lawyer can obtain a restraining order, which is legal injunction that prevents the abuser from contacting you at work or at home, or from being within a certain distance of your location. It can also prohibit communication through emails or texting. Domestic violence is often an issue during divorce proceedings. Proving domestic violence may affect the court’s decision regarding child custody and visitation.
