Is There A Divorce Law About Domestic Violence Against Men In Florida?
Under Florida’s divorce laws, men and women are treated as equals and if domestic violence can be established against either spouse the court is likely to award more alimony, child support and custody privileges to the abused spouse along with exclusive use and possession of the marital home and other relief.
If you are a man who has been the victim of domestic violence or abuse by a spouse or partner, it’s important that you report the abuse immediately. If you believe you are in danger of domestic violence or continued domestic violence, you can seek a protective injunction to restrict your partner’s behavior and/or movement to prevent the threatened abuse.
