Injuries inflicted by a spouse upon a spouse can be a very tricky area under the law. If you have been injured by your spouse (or if you have injured them), please raise this issue with your lawyer and ask what your rights and potential liabilities are. Often such injuries are referred to by lawyers as "Torts" meaning an actionable injury. You may forfeit some rights if these issues or claims are not raised in the divorce, such as the right to recover for injuries inflicted upon you by your spouse during the marriage. While generally the injuries must be physical, the law is in flux and perhaps emotional injuries can be compensable, although those are often difficult cases to prevail upon. Nonetheless, physical injuries are not limited to bruises, cuts and broken bones, they may include sexually transmitted and other diseases transferred intentionally or negligently by one spouse to another. Please discuss these with your lawyer.
