When should you discuss domestic abuse with a lawyer?
If you have been the victim of any type of domestic abuse and are seeking protection, you should contact a Shawnee Family Law Attorney. Because of the confidentiality provided by the attorney-client privilege, you can speak openly and honestly with an attorney about your situation. Your attorney will not and cannot disclose this to anyone, which will prevent you from being subject to potential embarrassment or the other party learning of your concerns.

An attorney can discuss with you the different options available under the law to help you escape or receive relief from the abuse. If you choose to pursue these options, an attorney will represent you in the process and advocate for your protection.
