Does It Matter Who Brings The Action?
The person who brings the case first gets to talk first. Some lawyers swear that there is an advantage to being first. Others say it doesn’t really matter. There is no negative connotation attributable to the spouse who brings the action or to the person who responds to the action. However, “first impression are lasting impressions.”
If family violence has been a part of your life, you need to take immediate action. It is more credible for a victim of family violence to bring the action first.
