Between 2 and 4 million women are annually victimized by domestic violence. Most children in homes in which domestic violence occurs witness that abuse and suffer secondary psychological effects, including aggressive behavior and depression. Male children who witness abuse are more likely to become abusers themselves as adults, creating a vicious, intergenerational cycle of violent behavior. (ABA Domestic Violence Commission)
If you need help or someone you know is experiencing or in some way involved in domestic violence please recognize that there are measures to take in order to prevent further harm.

Divorce Tip: # 24 An uncontested divorce case is a divorce that does not require a trial. The disputes, if any, are resolved by the couple without the need of the court's decisions. This does not mean that the court does not have a role. All divorces must have some kind of judicial proceeding before you are issued a legal divorce decree. Sponsored by:
