Domestic Violence Is A Serious Matter. PCB Can Help!

Domestic violence occurs in every community regardless of social, economic, and educational circumstances and backgrounds. The victims of domestic violence may be young or old, gay or straight, rich or poor. They may be from any racial or religious background.

Domestic violence is not limited to those obvious cases where a husband is beating his wife. Domestic violence, which Missouri refers to as “Adult Abuse,” is a pattern of coercive control in which one person either physically harms another or arouses fear, prevents a partner from doing what they wish, or forces a partner to behave in ways they do not want to and against their will.

Adult Abuse may include the use of physical or sexual violence, threats or intimidation, emotional abuse, and even economic deprivation. Many victims feel that if they are not in need of medical care they are not being abused. However, humiliation, isolation, intimidation, denial, and blame can be just as serious as physical abuse.

Domestic violence can happen between spouses, people living together, whether romantically involved or not, or people who are dating. It includes those same-sex relationships. Men can be abused as well as women. People who are being stalked are also considered victims of abuse.

It is important to find an attorney that understands that any type of abuse is serious. It must be investigated and taken seriously. Research shows that the victim is at greatest danger at the time she leaves. Coordination with domestic violence victim advocates and the police are critical components in resolving these difficult cases.

The St. Louis family law attorneys at Paule, Camazine and Blumenthal will help abused individuals find safety, both emotionally and physically.
