Child custody.

Domestic violence has a permanent impact on family dynamics, and courts must take these accusations into account when considering child custody. Parents are required to disclose all instances of domestic violence—and any resulting restraining orders—as part of the divorce and custody process.


The court will consider a reasonable right of visitation by a child's non-custodial parent unless there is evidence that visitation would not be in the child’s best interests. In domestic violence cases, the court may order supervised visitation or even terminate a parent's right to visitation.
