Domestic Violence Archives

An attorney can be a victim's greatest advocate

When you are in an abusive relationship, it can be an isolating and emotionally draining experience. The fear of continued punishment for everything you do can make you freeze and feel unable to extract yourself from the situation. But you must know that it is possible to remove yourself and your children from this toxic situation and you don't have to do it by yourself.

How domestic violence is defined by Kansas law

No one wants to face allegations for domestic abuse, but many do in the state of Kansas. According to a report by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation posted on Access Kansas's web site, there were nearly 23,000 incidences of domestic violence in 2014 with half of those leading to arrests. Victims are typically white females between the ages of 20-29 with the average offender being white males of the same age. Most incidents occur between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m. on Saturday or Sunday.
