October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Unfortunately, when guys going through divorce say they are the victims of domestic violence, they are often met with blank stares, suspicion and disbelief.
Cordell & Cordell CEO Joseph E. Cordell wrote about the frustrating reality in his article “The Fives Musts For Dealing With Domestic Violence In Your Divorce” appearing on HuffingtonPost.com.
“Let me be clear,” Mr. Cordell wrote. “Violence against women should not be tolerated, just as violence against men should not be tolerated. But in my experience and in the opinions of other Cordell & Cordell attorneys, men have a harder case to prove that they are the victims, not the perpetrators.”
