Will domestic violence affect my custody case in Florida?
Absolutely, domestic violence could affect your custody case in Florida. There are several things the court would look at in determining the domestic violence. Number one, is it recent domestic violence? Number two, were there minor children present during or did they view the domestic violence? Number three, has there been any treatment that has been received by the party committing the domestic violence since it happened? Some of the remedies are that the party who is committing the domestic violence could have less time with the children or any time they do have could be supervised.
