The McAllen divorce attorneys at Barrera Sanchez & Associates, P.C. understand the hardships families face as a result of domestic violence and can provide representation for victims of abuse.

At Your Side

Anything from physical to psychological abuse can be classified as domestic violence. It is often used to gain control over a spouse or significant other in order to manipulate their behavior. Our attorneys strive to resolve issues that often plague complicated divorces while ensuring a solution is tailored to meet the individual needs of each client.

Find the Courage to Take Action

Whether physical, financial or emotional abuse has taken place in your marriage, allegations of domestic violence must be proven in order for the accusation to be validated by courts.

The Texas Family Code allows for divorce to be granted when a spouse files under cruelty, one of the seven grounds for marriage termination, as long as the other spouse is “guilty of cruel treatment.”

If spousal abuse intensifies due to tension and anger during the divorce process, you may file a restraining order to ensure the safety and well-being of you and your children.
