Defending against domestic violence allegations

Domestic violence issues have become a major concern in our society today. Domestic violence can include physical, emotional, sexual, psychological and even financial abuse. Minor arguments can escalate into major fights involving violence. In many states, the definition of domestic violence is very broad in order to provide protection to victims who really need it. Those who are charged with domestic violence can face criminal charges and restraining orders.

However, not everyone charged with domestic violence is guilty. In some cases, a harmless argument between spouses can result in one spouse facing these severe charges due to a misunderstanding. False allegations of abuse can have devastating results for the person who is charged.

Domestic violence charges can have an effect on many aspects of your life beyond the immediate issue of navigating the legal process. If you have children, a domestic battery charge may prevent you from seeing them and may also have an impact on your custody and visitation agreements. Without the appropriate defense, you could be dealing with these charges, in some form or another, for the rest of your life.

Because of the serious consequences that come with being found guilty of domestic violence, it is important to find an attorney who can aggressively defend against these charges and protect your rights. As soon as you are charged, it is important to learn about the next steps. The Collins Law Firm has experience representing people all over the Virginia Beach area in regards to false spousal abuse allegations, domestic assault and battery charges and restraining order violations.
