Domestic Abuse/Violence

There is created a presumption that no parent who has a history of perpetrating family violence shall be awarded sole or joint custody of children. The court may find a history of perpetrating family violence if the court finds that one incident of family violence has resulted in serious bodily injury or the court finds more than one incident of family violence. Please note that a domestic abuse battery charge or violation of a protective order can result in the same presumptions. Therefore, any guilty to plea or admission to a domestic violence related charge will prevent you from having any custody of your children and allow the other parent to relocate from where they live with your children to anywhere else without your permission.
