About Domestic Violence

In domestic situations sometimes tempers can run high. A person might say something without really meaning it or a misunderstanding can escalate. In most cases the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty, but in a domestic relationship an accusation of assault (threats or threatening behavior) or battery (physical contact) can be made without any bruises or evident injury, or any witnesses.

In order to protect the alleged victim usually a temporary injunction for protection (temporary restraining order) will be quickly issued. Domestic violence can also include stalking, child abuse, sex crimes and cyber stalking. If you find yourself accused of domestic violence, get the help of a skilled Brevard County criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights.
