Domestic abuse is a common occurrence for many individuals. Often after an incident of domestic violence has taken place, a person may look to find legal help to deal with the issue. Visiting a local police department may be surprisingly helpful when dealing with a domestic abuse case. Police officers can offer information and guidance about how to deal with the domestic violence that is occurring.
Often they will be able to offer information about local law firms who specialize in domestic abuse as well as support groups in the area. Support groups may also be helpful to discuss previously used lawyers and the way a domestic abuse court case generally runs. Both the police department and support groups will offer free legal support and advice, therefore less time and money will be spent when discussing a domestic abuse case with a law firm.
