Victims of domestic violence in Connecticut are not alone

Relationships can often start out wonderfully, but they can be tricky and difficult for each partner to navigate. Disagreements and personality differences can bring out the worst in some people and, sometimes, a tendency toward violence that the other partner may not have been aware of at the beginning of the courtship. When domestic violence becomes an issue within a Connecticut couple's relationship, finding a way out is an important and often lifesaving necessity.

Authorities were called to the scene of domestic dispute recently. Reports indicate that a woman was being choked almost to the point of passing out. Upon arrival and after closer inspection, police noted injuries to her neck.

The 26-year-old man in question was said to be leaving the scene as police arrived. The suspect was arrested on the spot and is facing charges of third-degree strangulation and disorderly conduct. The woman apparently had in place a protective order against the accused when the assault occurred, and violation of a protective order will be charged as well. At last report, the man was being held on a $10,000 surety bond.

When domestic violence is an issue within a relationship, there are resources within the community for both the abused and the abuser. When counseling and reconciliation are not an option, it may be time to sever the ties with the abuser. Domestic violence victims in Connecticut have every right to seek the services of a family law attorney to secure a protective order and start the divorce process should they wish to do so.
