Domestic Violence

Millions of spouses and partners have endured physical abuse at the hands of their another, and family law continues to develop to assist those in need and protect children. Both Iowa and Illinois have specific procedures available at no cost to help victims obtain protective orders and restraining orders on a temporary and long term basis. Such orders can also be obtained in dissolution of marriage cases, generally with the help of a private family law attorney.

In such cases, the courts take on the difficult task of trying to balance the need for a continuing relationship between a child and a parent who is an abuser, while protecting that child from risk of direct harm. Occasionally an abuser is required to take anger management classes or obtain counseling before initiating unsupervised visits, depending on the severity of the abusive conduct and identity of the victim.
