Domestic violence ranges from direct physical action, verbal abuse, sexual attack, stalking and property damage to more subtle forms of intimidation.
These include financial and emotional manipulation designed to intimidate you and erode your confidence and wellbeing. Such tactics can be directed against your children, along with attempts to turn them against you.
Children are most often the innocent victims; they become frightened, confused and typically don’t want to take sides. This conflict of loyalties is devastating and often requires counselling and other assistance.
Domestic violence is never a clear issue. Complex in itself, it offers endless opportunities for emotional blackmail and attempts to influence the agenda of your separation or divorce.
