Dealing with a divorce is difficult enough. If your divorce involves domestic violence, it can be even scarier and more demanding. The threat of abuse can hamper communication with your spouse. Poor communication can make it even harder to work through the proceedings. It can also lead to uncertainty and pain. However, there are certain things you can do to make sure that you and your loved ones are safe and secure.
Cases involving domestic abuse are often considered to be high-conflict. These are cases in which the struggle for power and victory often supersede any other obligations, such as towards a couple’s children. High-conflict individuals often have an intense drive. Thus, they will sometimes use domestic violence to assert their dominance.
If you are involved with a high-conflict spouse in your divorce, it is in your best interests to end the case as quickly as possible. Of course, everyone associated with the lawsuit probably desires the same thing. However, finishing the trial is imperative when dealing with a high-conflict individual. The longer the proceedings take, the more likely they are to affect the financial, emotional, and physical aspects of all parties involved.
