Helping You Defend Against Allegations Of Domestic Violence
Situations involving the allegation of domestic abuse can be incredibly harmful. Whether domestic violence charges stem from an incident where police became involved, or if they are a part of family law proceedings such as an injunction for protection, domestic violence is a serious and potentially life-altering criminal charge.
Florida Aggressively Prosecutes Domestic Violence
When police respond to a domestic incident, they must assess the situation and reach a quick conclusion. Often, this results in a night in jail, even if there is little evidence domestic abuse occurred.
Prosecutors can seek a conviction with or without the help of the alleged victim. Penalties for a conviction may include:
- Mandatory jail time if there are injuries
- Mandatory weekly classes
- Loss of the right to possess a firearm for life
- A presumption of unsuitability for child custody
- Mandatory deportation if not a United States Citizen
