Domestic Violence in Georgia
The state has laws that specifically govern how domestic violence is defined and handled by authorities. The Family Violence Act defines that domestic violence is not just an event that occurs between spouses. The law addresses any violence that occurs between individuals who share the same residence.
Notably, the Family Violence Act provides specific protections to those who have been abused. The law handles matters of child custody, financial support, and other matters that must be addressed in domestic violence situations. This law means that those who are accused of domestic violence may not be facing only criminal charges—they could lose their right to see their children.
In some cases, a person may have a Family Protective Order placed on them. When this happens, they are banned from contacting the person who is accusing them of domestic violence. This order can force an individual to vacate their home, lose the rights to see their children, and, if the order is broken, they may be arrested. If you are being accused of domestic violence, you must be represented by an attorney who will protect your future, finances, and family.
