Defending False Accusations of Domestic Violence

Defending Domestic Violence Accusations

It’s unsettling and unfortunate, that in family law, particularly in high conflict divorce or child custody cases, there are instances where one party may make false allegations of domestic abuse or child abuse against the other. This can occur when one parent is trying to alienate the other from their minor children or otherwise trying to win a family law case. If you are being threatened with false allegations of abuse or domestic violence, now is the time to consult with a lawyer to discuss your options before legal action is taken against you. Ignoring high conflict family law matters in an effort to “keep the peace” is common, but doing so usually ends in regret. If a protective order has been granted against you based on false allegations of abuse, it is important to consult an aggressive Tampa Bay domestic violence defense attorney who specializes in Florida Family Law.  A false domestic violence allegation in any circumstance is cause for concern, but particularly when coupled with a contentious divorce or child custody situation. If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence and you’re divorcing, anticipating a divorce or timesharing time with your accuser–this can have devastating consequences if you are not properly defended.
