If significant domestic violence exists, the court may award you sole legal custody of your children without considering any other child custody factors.

If the children have witnessed the domestic violence or have themselves have been verbally, physically or emotionally abused, the court can either order no visitation to that parent or only supervised parenting time. The court can also order the abuser to go through a domestic violence assessment with a trained expert and can be ordered to go through domestic violence treatment.
