Protecting yourself from false domestic violence accusations

On Behalf of | Sep 26, 2019 | Criminal Defense, Family Law |

There are a lot of legal topics to consider when it comes to domestic violence cases, and every single one is different. Sometimes, people are accused of this offense even though they are completely innocent. These cases can be especially disruptive and have caused many people to throw in the towel and give up. This is very unfortunate, because they may have been able to protect their future by proving their innocence if they would have committed themselves to preparing for their case and ensuring that the smartest approach was taken.

These false claims may be brought on by a bitter divorce or the end of a long-term relationship. Or, they could be initiated by a family member who is disgruntled and wants to bring someone down. When it comes to the details of a domestic violence case, proving innocence can be tough, especially when it involves one person’s word against another’s. Unfortunately, with such a terrible stigma, courts may side with the alleged victim even if they are not telling the truth.

It is imperative to do everything in your power to protect yourself, especially since so many facets of your life could be disrupted by these allegations. Your job, children and even your ability to stay out of prison could all be impacted by the outcome of a domestic violence case. We completely understand how devastating it is when someone has to face these consequences even though they did not do anything wrong, and under these circumstances it is vital to leave no stone unturned and do all that you can to prepare your defense.
