Over 50% of all women in a domestic relationship will experience some sort of abuse, and unfortunately, 30% of these abuse cases result in ongoing physical and mental harm over time.
In Georgia, a domestic violence case does not always involve a married couple. Georgia’s domestic violence laws also apply to domestic partners, parent-child relationships, as well as stepparents and children.
Although getting help and finding a way out of such a difficult situation may seem like an impossible feat, it is important to always remember that help is only a phone call away.
Attorneys Pat McDonough and Trinity Hundredmark at Andersen, Tate & Carr have represented hundreds of clients in domestic abuse situations, and know the law when it comes to legal rights and protection in relation to domestic violence cases.
Pat & Trinity have successfully helped victims secure a Temporary Protective Order (TPO) and/or assisted with charges being brought against an alleged aggressor.
Abuse laws may vary from state to state, and not every type of abuse may be covered in all areas. It’s imperative to have the right team behind you when it comes to navigating the laws and protections available in Georgia.
So what can be done to help begin building a new life when it comes to an abusive relationship? There are several ways to begin, such as:
- Calling a domestic abuse hotline (such as the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233))
- Reaching out to a neighbor or close friend who can be around during a time of need
- Seeking emotional counseling
- Obtaining a protection order, which allows for a law mandated level of privacy from an unwanted individual
- And most importantly, seeking qualified legal counsel, such as Pat McDonough and Trinity Hundredmark
