Phoenix Domestic Abuse
New App to Help with Domestic Abuse
Domestic violence is clearly not going to just stop, so the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence have started the fight to help those who are being abused.
Dr. Jill Messing is a ASU associate professor and works in the School of Social Work. She’s worked hard to help create a new tool for women of domestic violence, an app.
Dr. Messing’s Statement:
Women who have easy access to their phones, it’s really important that they can provide them with safety information.
The app is being called “myPlan.” myPlan is aiming to help guide women to get the help that they need and even help them by connecting them with the national abuse networks that will ultimately get them in contact with local help.
If they want to, women can provide a profile and then fill out a survey to find out if they are in an abusive relationship.
Dr. Messing’s Statement:
myPlan provides them with information about relationships, red flags, it provides educational information.
The app can be used free of charge and advertising. It’s a tool to help women who feel they are stuck and have no way out of an abusive relationship, but want the help.
Dr. Messing’s Statement:
It allows them a safe, private and confidential space to think about their values within their relationship and provide them with the safety information on safety planning.
I’m sure this is going to be a very helpful tool for scared women who feel like they are alone. If you might be facing abuse issues then please download the app and get the help that you deserve.
Criminal Defense Cases
The highly skilled Attorneys at Criminal Defense Lawyers PLLC advise and represent people facing criminal charges for domestic violence often described as Spousal Abuse, Spousal Battery or Domestic Dispute, such charges do not always reflect a case between married people, but include those living in the same location (cohabitation), or sometimes just engaged in a domestic (dating) relationship. Such cases can also lead to violation of a restraining order or protective orders. They are NOT the same as a Domestic Violence Restraining Order however.
With a team of former prosecutors, Phoenix based Criminal Defense Attorneys at Criminal Defense Lawyers PLLC offer a comprehensive understanding of the criminal justice system. They understand the necessary steps to take in developing an aggressive defense strategy focused on securing a dismissal or minimizing any potential penalties associated with a conviction.
Domestic Violence cases have become extremely political and are regularly treated as “guilty until proven innocent.” Even with minor cases, that do not involve a documented injury, proactive and rapid action by a caring defense attorney may be they key to not only avoiding a damaging no contact order, but may play a significant role in custody issues and an eventual resolution in the case that does not result in a life-time ban on the possession of firearms, tragic orders separating you from your family and other consequences that can interfere with work, school and life.
At the Law Offices of Criminal Defense Lawyers PLLC, we are committed to helping you achieve a resolution to your immediate problems, while seeking opportunities to improve the troubled family dynamics that might be underlying factors.
In domestic violence cases, the district attorney and the judge will be especially interested in what you’re willing to do to improve relationships, conflict resolution skills, and anger management. Your demonstration toward positive change will often make the difference in the outcome of your case. We work closely with people charged with domestic assault or battery to obtain a dismissal, diversion to community treatment or deferred entry of judgment prior to eventually achieving a dismissal.
