Stalking in Colorado must meet 1 of 3 criminal elements

Stalking in Colorado, in the simplest terms, is the "unwanted pursuit of another person." Most stalking actions in the state fall under the statute for harassment and many of the reported victims were once romantically involved with their alleged stalkers.

Emotional abuse allegations can have huge impacts on defendants

Many marriages are happy, and everyone hopes that theirs will be too. There are times when it might start out nicely, and then all of a sudden, your spouse accuses you of trying to control them. When this happens, they are accusing you of mental abuse without actually saying those words. You have to think carefully about what you are going to do because domestic violence is a serious matter.

Types of domestic violence and your options

Domestic violence is a serious problem, but it is one that goes far beyond the physical abuse that some people associate with it. This situation impacts the adults, as well as children who are in the home. The children are watching what's going on and might think that the behavior is normal. They might not have a model for a healthy relationship.

Bullying doesn't have a place in a marriage

Many things can lead to the end of a relationship. One of these is having an abusive spouse. In some cases, there might not be any physical abuse. However, emotional abuse and bullying can be just as tough to endure. In fact, some people have said they would have preferred to be physically rather than mentally abused.

Allegations of abuse make child custody cases difficult

Domestic violence is a tragedy, especially when children are involved. The situation becomes a challenge because there is a chance that the kids never experienced the abusive behavior. When this occurs, the court has to decide whether the child should still have a relationship with the parent who was allegedly abusive. We know that this is hard on both parents, but the child's safety has to be the priority.

Domestic violence can lead to serious life impacts

The intersection of domestic violence and family law is a difficult place for anyone to be. The problem that they face is that the criminal matter can have a direct impact on their family life. This is a challenge that can be hard to cope with because it can mean having to stay away from their children. It is imperative that anyone who is facing this type of accusation know what they are facing.

Safety is a focus when you leave an abusive relationship

Domestic violence is a dangerous situation, especially when children are involved. For parents in this situation, making plans to get the kids out of danger should be the priority. This might involve leaving the only home they've known and not being able to see their other parent, but you have to put your children's needs first.

Divorce legally ends your abusive marriage

Being able to feel safe in your home is something to which you have a right. Victims of domestic violence don't get to experience this. If you are being abused by your spouse, you should make plans to get out of the situation before it becomes deadly. Your life might depend on your being able to walk away.

Move forward after leaving an emotionally abusive relationship

Domestic violence is a very serious issue that must be treated as such. When you are the victim of this type of situation, moving past it can be difficult. Many people don't realize how difficult it is to have to deal with these things. It is especially hard for people to understand how much domestic violence impacts a person when the abuse is emotional instead of physical since you can't really see the emotional damage.

Accusations of domestic violence can make custody difficult

A child custody case that involves accusations of domestic violence is a trying situation for both parents. The parent who is making the claims against the other parent might be fighting to stop the alleged abuser from having time alone with the children. The alleged abuser might not ever have laid a hand on the children and might not have any intention of abusing the children. They might just want to move on with life and raise their children.
