Can You Claim Damages for Mental Suffering In Family Law?

If an assault or battery has occurred, then the court must assess the number of damages to award to you. If the abuser’s conduct was particularly humiliating to you, oppressive, malicious, degrading, causing you increased suffering during and after the incident, then the damage award will be higher. You should keep all receipts for any costs associated with the injury. If you had to go to a hotel to escape the abuse, take taxies, pay for parking at medical buildings, pay for medical reports, all of these costs can be reimbursed to you.
