Destination weddings can give the beginning of any marriage the appearance of a fairy tale, but the reality is most marriages are not fairy tales. Some New Jersey marriages quickly become nightmares and spiral out of control. Fortunately, a family court can intervene between a couple who cannot make amends or come to an agreement on the care and custody of their children. Adriana Partridge has filed for divorce from her husband and was granted a temporary restraining order against him following an alleged domestic violence incident.
Adriana Partridge and her on-again, off-again boyfriend had a fairy tale wedding in Hawaii, but it appears that's where the romance ended. The details of the incident have not been made public, but Patridge accused her husband of domestic violence and filed for divorce. The couple shares an 18-month-old daughter, for whom Patridge also secured a child abduction prevention order against Bohan.
Patridge's husband denied her claims of abuse, and Bohan countered the claims with his own requests. He has asked for joint legal and physical custody of his daughter. In addition, he has requested alimony from Patridge and that he not be required to pay child support.
As in this case, family law attorneys can assist in seeking an order of protection for a spouse and/or children who fear for their safety with regard to the actions of the other spouse. New Jersey attorneys can similarly advocate for spouses accused of domestic violence or who have had a restraining order issued against them. Divorce is not typically an easy or pleasant life event, but the right lawyer can assist a person on either end of the divorce proceedings to achieve a fair and lasting settlement.
