A: Its really hard to do a thorough analysis without full context, but Domestic Violence always grabs the attention of the Judge when looking at Family Law Cases.

At the same time, judges will almost always ensure both parents get substantial time with the child regardless of the criminal issues unless there has been violence against the child or violence in front of the child.
