Domestic Violence

For all too many, unfortunately, relationships become abusive. Often about control, threats, intimidation, financial constraints, and limits on interaction with the outside world. When this is not enough for the abuser, these cycles of abuse, or, ultimately, violence escalate. For victims of these situations, the courage to take the first steps to break free from the cycle are the most difficult, and, seemingly impossible. No one should, under any circumstances, stay in an abusive relationship.

We are blessed, in Georgia, to have remarkably strong laws to assist victims of family violence and abuse. Even for those who have already been divorced, the laws are here to provide immediate protection and assistance. Escaping a family violence or abuse situation can be accomplished in all cases, and is the first step towards regaining control over your life, and embarking upon a new chapter. Not every attorney is willing to take on these cases. For Mr. Lester, there are not more important matters.

Victims of domestic violence often have much to worry about. They may fear that they will lose custody of their children to their abusive spouse or lose their economic security if their spouse is awarded all of the money and assets in a divorce. The fear of such outcomes is terrifying, which is why someone who has experienced domestic violence should speak to an attorney as soon as possible. Bill has advised and protected many victims of domestic violence, and he has a proven track record of achieving the possible outcome in this tragic area of family law.

Domestic violence can be physical, mental, and emotional. It can also involve psychological intimidation. Most often, abusers use these forms of violence against their spouse to establish control and create fear. Some abusers may even be overly controlling of the marital property and financial income. Experiencing any type of abuse can leave you in real fear for your safety and that of your children. By consulting an attorney experienced in helping the victims of domestic violence, you can take legal action that will help end this abuse. Bill can help you in getting immediate protection and a divorce from your abusive spouse, and help you file an Order of Protection to protect you from further domestic violence.
