Defense Against Accusations Of Domestic Violence

It's not uncommon for an angry spouse to accuse her partner of spousal abuse to gain the upper hand in a child custody or marital property division dispute. If you are subject to a temporary protection order, it is imperative for you to contact a lawyer immediately. If you fail to get the order lifted, you could be subject to loss of child custody rights, loss of employment and other consequences. You should not attempt to contact your spouse to discuss the order, or you could be charged with a crime.

Attorney Representing Men Accused Of Domestic Violence In Florida

Unfortunately, men are often treated unfairly when accusations of domestic violence are leveled against them. While the problem of violence in the home is systemic and very real, and when charges are made frivolously or impulsively, your rights can be abused. The damage to your reputation, your job prospects and your relationship with your children can be irreparable.

If you have been served with a protective order, you need to understand the gravity of the situation. Family violence defendants are often ordered to stay away from their house and their children for weeks at a time. Whatever the circumstances, you should never violate a protective order, even if asked to return. Violating a protective or restraining order is a crime, and "I was invited over" is not a defense.
