Defense After a Domestic Violence Arrest
Domestic violence is a very serious crime and there are multiple agencies
available to assist battered victims; however, domestic violence is also
an incredibly powerful allegation that is often misused in family law
cases. Each year, hundreds of individuals are wrongfully accused of domestic
violence by a spouse or significant other who is looking to gain an upper
hand in a divorce, child custody or civil proceeding. In other cases,
the alleged abuser was acting in self-defense or did not actually inflict
harm upon the supposed victim.
Some of the defenses that can be made in your domestic violence case are:
- Self Defense
- Medical Purpose
- Mental disease
- False Allegation
Each domestic violence case is as unique as the individuals involved and
deserves a personalized defense, which is why you need to work with the
