We recently discussed some of the finer points of domestic violence incidents. If you recall, we discussed how not all domestic violence is physical. Other types, including emotional, sexual and financial are also possible. When you are accused of any form of domestic violence, you might find that your life changes dramatically.
One way that these accusations can impact you immediately is that you might not be able to go back home. You will have to find a place to stay if the court orders you to stay away from your alleged victim. This places a huge burden on you because it was something you might not be prepared to do.
We know that you might be concerned about what these accusations are going to do for your family life. The answer to this isn’t really that easy to determine. Domestic violence accusations, as well as convictions, can impact your child custody rights. We can help you find ways that you can fight back against the domestic violence charges.
There are some cases that involve he said-she said circumstances. These are often hard to handle because it all comes down to who seems more credible. In other cases, hard evidence is present. In these cases, the focus of your defense becomes trying to call some of the evidence into question.
We understand that you probably have some questions about what you can do. We can go over your case with you and help you find options that you can consider. Once we have a plan made, we will work with you to battle against the accusations of domestic violence.
