Women At Risk in Divorce

The Department of Justice reports that 1 in 4 women in the U.S. will experience domestic violence during their lives. Further research shows that domestic violence and abuse is statistically as likely to occur in any segment of society. This means it cuts across all socio-economic, cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds.

Women can face complications in divorcing their husbands because of specific obstacles that make leaving their spouse seem nearly impossible. The two most cited obstacles to leaving an abusive husband are finances and children.

Evacuation Plan for Women At Risk
A woman may fear that the act of leaving or filing for divorce will trigger serious retaliation by her husband. Verbal and emotional conflicts are common, especially when the desire for divorce is not mutual. However, at-risk situations demand planning and vital preparation to avoid dangerous conflicts. When children are involved, the legal planning for the safe evacuation of you and your child/ren can become more complex. However, there are some legal measures we can plan for that may allow you to safely maintain immediate custody.

Attorney Dana Richardson has worked with at-risk women, with and without children, in Pennsylvania divorce cases. She helps women in abusive marriages carefully plan for safe removal from their abusive environments by using a well thought-out evacuation plan.
