My Spouse Keeps Saying He’ll Get Custody Because There Were No Witnesses To His Abuse And I Can’t Prove It. Is He Right?
My spouse keeps saying he’ll get custody because there were no witnesses to his abuse and I can’t prove it. Is he right?
No. Most domestic violence is not witnessed by others, and judges know this. If you have been a victim of abusive behavior by your spouse, or if you have witnessed your children as victims, your testimony is likely to be the most compelling evidence. Be sure to tell your attorney about anyone who may have either seen your spouse’s behavior or spoken to you or your children right after an abusive incident.
