A domestic issue can be one of the most frightening experience one can endure. On one hand, legal action is not always taken due to emotional reasons, and anything else that may arise. However, if legal action is taken it can ultimately remedy the situation, providing closure for the specific issue at hand. If you or someone you know has been involved in a domestic issue, below are a few reasons to pursue legal representation.
- Peace of mind is important if someone has harmed you physically and/or threatened your life. It is imperative in a situation like this to stand up for yourself and pursue a legal resolution.
- Orders of protection or restraining orders can result from a successful court case. Coinciding with the above, if you fear for your own safety, an order such as this can provide you with the sense of safety that you so rightfully deserve.
- Compensatory damages can be awarded to you if the issue has left you unable to work, or provide for yourself financially. This can only happen in a courtroom where seen appropriate by a judge. This type of resolution would most certainly require an attorney.
- If you are involved in raising a child, pursuing legal action with evidence can lead to custody rights of the child in question. Removing them from the hands of an abuser permanently can result in the safety of that party as well.
