Brevard County Domestic Violence Attorney
Domestic Violence Laws in Florida
In domestic situations, sometimes tempers can run high. A person might say something without really meaning it, and a misunderstanding can escalate. In most cases, the accused is considered innocent until proven guilty, but in a domestic relationship, an accusation of assault or battery can be made without any bruises, evident injury, or any witnesses.
Domestic violence can also include:
- Child abuse
- Sex crimes
- Cyber stalking
In order to protect the alleged victim usually a temporary injunction for protection (temporary restraining order) will be quickly issued which could:
- Prevent you from approaching your home
- Restrict visitation
- Affect your reputation
- Impact your employment as well as other areas of your life
Any violation of an injunction will create serious legal problems for you. If you find yourself accused of domestic violence, get the help of a skilled Brevard County criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights.
