“Untying the Knot”
When’s the last time you broke a promise? Most of us intend to follow through with our promises, but that doesn’t always happen in reality. What should you expect when going through with a divorce, and should you hire legal representation? Suburban Family Magazine recently answered those questions in a magazine article titled “Untying the Knot.” Journalists seeking answers went directly to Frances Hartman and Frank Cordry, leading divorce lawyers, to answer those questions.
Suburban Family Magazine
Suburban Family Magazine is a monthly magazine that’s dedicated to families in New Jersey. The magazine often features articles that touch on serious issues that impact New Jersey’s family and community members. In “Untying the Knot,” author Liz Hunter discusses the serious topic of divorce and how to cope with it. She interviewed both Frances Hartman and Frank Cordry about domestic violence and its role in divorce proceedings. Here’s what they had to say:
- Domestic violence during a divorce often includes assault, threats, harassment, financial abuse and isolation
- Attorney Hartman explained that she often encourages victims to seek out counseling for their own safety
- Attorney Hartman also explained that temporary restraining orders or civil restraints are a great option for victims
- Both lawyers explained that they take claims of domestic violence very seriously. Details and witnesses are necessary because sometimes false claims are made
- Claims of violence should never be used as leverage in divorce or child custody cases
Domestic violence incidents may become more apparent throughout a divorce proceeding. If you are in fear for your safety, then it’s necessary to reach out for help as soon as possible.
