How does domestic violence impact child custody and visitation?

When a victim of domestic violence decides to leave the abusive relationship, that decision is often not easy. A significant volume of abuse is emotional in nature, and includes belittling the victim and attempting to convince him or her that there is no chance of happiness outside of the confines of that relationship. For victims who share one or more children with their abuser, the matter is even further complicated. Family courts in Arizona and elsewhere do not always give domestic violence the proper consideration when making child custody and visitation determinations.

Reaching a new level of financial savvy is often a primary goal during this period of transition, and it can be a powerful aspect of shaping a new life.
