Dakota County Divorce Lawyer Lisa Amundson Also Handles Child Custody and Domestic Abuse Cases
Dakota County divorce lawyer Lisa Amundson of Amundson Law Office, a firm based in Eagan, MN, also handles a number of child custody and domestic abuse cases. In divorce and family law cases where there is domestic abuse, this can aggravate the already emotionally charged atmosphere. Victims of abuse may feel intimidated, embarrassed, or fear that further abuse may be committed against them and their children. However, consulting with someone who has a lot of experience in dealing with such cases is vital in escaping from such an abusive relationship.
Abusive people often try to threaten their spouse and tell them that things will get worse if they tell someone about the abuses but it is the only way for victims of abuse and their children to make things better for themselves. Ensuring their safety and that of their children is the first priority and they can call the police if they feel they are in immediate danger.
Lisa Amundson says, “If you are the victim of a domestic violence situation and don't know what to do, we can help. I am an effective and experienced family law attorney who works tirelessly to get the best result for every client. We offer a free consultation from our offices in Minneapolis or Bloomington, or at a mutually convenient location in the Burnsville, Apple Valley or Eagan area. I have in-depth experience as a domestic abuse attorney when it comes to family law issues where domestic violence was a factor. If you need help working through a divorce or child custody issue, do not hesitate to call and arrange your free initial consultation.”
On the other hand, those who have been charged with domestic abuse should not take the allegations lightly. They need to secure the services of an experienced lawyer in order to minimize its impact on how they will live their life in the near future. If the accusations are not true, Lisa Amundson can help the accused deal with the allegations.
Meanwhile, in cases where there is domestic violence, child custody is an important issue. Unfortunately, the abusive spouse is just as likely to get custody of the children as the battered spouse. Thus, having the support of an experienced child custody lawyer is essential. In Minnesota, the law is focused on the best interests of the child. Lisa Amundson has a lot of experience in handling custody cases under all kinds of situations.
There are various kinds of child custody, which are physical custody, legal custody, sole custody, and joint custody. Physical custody is where a particular parent has the right to have the child live with him or her. It should be noted that while this provides the parent with physical custody to have more control over daily decisions related to raising the child, it does not provide total control.
It is the parent who has legal custody who can make the decisions on how to raise the child. Typically, joint legal custody is awarded by a court but there are certain situations where sole legal custody is awarded.
