Are You a Victim of Domestic Violence?

Many victims of domestic violence often do not report the abusive and violent acts of their significant other or loved one. It is crucial that all victims know there is help and they have options.

Breaking the Domestic Violence Cycle

Talk to a Lavaca domestic violence attorney to learn how you can legally protect yourself and your children.

Common legal terms explained

Pro se – This Latin term refers to representing yourself in court instead of hiring professional legal counsel. Pro se representation can occur in either criminal or civil cases.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
