Thumbnail image for Hand Up.jpgDomestic violence cases are unique because of their competing issues. The legal system weighs a number of values for every case: fairness, due process, expeditiousness, and potential impact on society are just a few. Domestic violence cases usually involve someone in imminent or current danger or a child's ability to see both of his/her parents, meaning that the courts often must focus on speed over the other values, to prevent further physical or emotional harm. But speed should not come at the cost of other concerns and the courts must find a way to balance all of them together.
