Family violence can mean many things, given the unique nature of every family unit. In one case, it might be centrally confined to a troubled partner who acts out physically against his — and sometimes her — partner. In another case, children might be bearing the brunt of an adult’s anger.

And domestic abuse can encompass far more than physical violence, with human beings often being equally hurt by behavior that consistently condescends, belittles, harasses or otherwise intimidates family members.

Thus, family violence is a flatly complex topic, rendered even more so by instances where evidence reveals allegations that are not well-founded. Sadly, people sometimes do falsely implicate others, for reasons ranging from some advantage they seek to secure in a divorce proceeding (e.g., a grant of child custody) to motives fueled solely by animosity.

Notwithstanding that, though, it is unquestioned that domestic violence is a problem of considerable proportions in all states of the country, including Arkansas.
