Divorce and spousal abuse can, in some situations, be linked together. There are possible instances where one triggers the other — the divorce touches off spousal abuse or the battered spouse is the one seeking a divorce. It is extremely important that you contact a family law lawyer at the Cantor Law Group for help if you feel like you have been or are the victim of spousal abuse.

False Allegations of Spousal Abuse
One of the things we find quite often in Arizona divorce cases is a false allegation of spousal abuse. The situation that is most common is step-parent being accused of abuse or harming the other parent or step-child. This can happen to step-parents if the divorce becomes contentious between Mom and Step-Dad, or the other way around. False allegations are just as hurtful as real allegations because there can be a criminal legal action taken. If the suspected abuse (real or false) is of sexual nature, those type of crimes in Arizona are typically ‘non-bondable’, meaning you will stay in jail until the situation is legally resolved. Make no mistake, real and false allegations of any type of abuse are very serious and should not be taken lightly. This is why we recommend you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
