Are Domestic Violence Issues Affecting Your Family Law Case?

Domestic violence is both a criminal matter and a family law issue, in many cases. Domestic violence charges and case outcomes can have a significant impact on a child custody or divorce case. For best results, consult with an attorney well-versed in both areas of the law: criminal and family law.

The Childress Firm, PLLC, in Bartlett, Tennessee, represents people on both sides of domestic violence matters throughout the Memphis area. Our family law practice is also well-developed. We most often represent people in Shelby County.

Our clients often match descriptions such as the following:

  • A husband, wife or domestic partner is accused of physical abuse or threats. The allegedly targeted party reports the abuse and seeks a restraining order. The accused may lose access to his or her home and children.
  • A wife, husband or domestic partner feels threatened or has already been injured by an estranged spouse or partner. The fearful party seeks relief as well as reassurance that justice will be done. In some cases, the fearful party seeks to restrict parenting time by the other party in a divorce decree or in a standalone child custody order.

We understand that criminal defense is one thing and the outcome of a family law matter is another. The Childress Firm, PLLC, is a trusted source of information, legal counsel and advocacy in both areas of the law. However, you may work with this firm on your family law matter even if your criminal defense attorney is elsewhere — and vice versa. That is, you may have your own divorce attorney and need help with criminal defense. The Childress Firm, PLLC, is ready to handle either or both aspects of your case.
