Domestic violence is defined as incidents between family, household members, or between parties involved in a romantic or intimate relationship. This crime can include arguments, stalking, physical touching, psychological abuse, harsh words, or threats of violence. At the law firm of Fernandez and Hernandez, LLC, we represent individuals charged with a crime including domestic throughout the State of Florida.
Our firm handles criminal defense throughout the state of Florida, including Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, Pasco County, Polk County, Hernando County, Manatee County, Sarasota County, and Citrus County.
A domestic violence arrest can occur after only one person has made an accusation without any other witnesses or proof. It only takes one incident or one accusation and an injunction can be put in place for as little as three months to the rest of the person’s life.
Oftentimes such reports are made when an accuser is jealous or upset about support, alimony, or child custody on either side.
If you are convicted of domestic violence in Florida, the results can be severe personal and financial hardships. Frequently when a person appears for a bond hearing on such a charge, the judge will order that the defendant has no contact with the alleged victim, meaning that he or she will have to move out of the household until the case is concluded.
You will also lose your right to possess a firearm under federal law. Additionally, police may file domestic violence charges without the alleged victim seeking charges. The victim will also not have the option to drop the charges.
Due to the fact that prosecutors rely on the police report and the account of the alleged victim when making their filing decision, it is very important to present conflicting evidence and the accuser’s motive to the prosecutor as soon as possible.
If you have been charged with this crime, it is very important to contact an experienced lawyer who is committed to representing your best interests.
