Domestic violence charges can come after a variety of situations occur. We recently discussed how stalking someone might end with you facing criminal charges based on that behavior. This is only one example. Other examples include physical violence, financial abuse, and emotional abuse.
We know that you don’t want to see your entire life turned upside down because of a disagreement with your significant other or other family member. We are here to help you learn about what defense options you have.
In domestic violence cases, the ways you can defend yourself against the charges depend on the circumstances of the case. Cases that are based on physical abuse might mean that you have to answer as to why the alleged victim has specific marks on their body. In the case of financial abuse, you may have to show that you weren’t controlling your significant other with money.
While this is a very troubling situation for a person to have to deal with, it isn’t the end of the world. You can learn your rights, assert those rights and fight back against the horrible criminal charges.
As you fight to prove you aren’t guilty of domestic violence, you may have to deal with some social aspects of the accusations. You will likely be ordered to stay away from the alleged victim, which means you may have to find another place to live. You might not be able to carry a weapon and you might be told to stay away from your children.
No matter what happened, we can help you fight back against the domestic violence charges that are threatening to take you away from your loved ones.
