Domestic Violence Battery in Tampa Florida - Fernandez and Hernandez LLC

When it comes to domestic violence, Florida is a zero tolerance state. Domestic violence is defined as violence committed against a family or household member. More specifically, domestic violence occurs when a spouse, ex spouse, co-parent of a child or other domestic partner commits or attempts to commit a criminal act such as battery, assault, false imprisonment, aggravated battery or stalking against the victim. A threat of physical harm may also constitute domestic violence.

If you are arrested and charged with domestic violence you should expect the following: You will be held without bail for 24 hours, you will be taken before a judge who will then decide whether to release you on bail, and a no contact order with the alleged victim will be entered.

If you live with the alleged victim you will not be able to return to your home. Restrictions may also be imposed on your contact with children living in the home. The maximum penalty for misdemeanor domestic violence is one year in jail.

There are serious consequences and stigmas behind domestic violence and a proper defense by an experienced Tampa Criminal Defense Attorney is needed.  One of the consequences that follow is a domestic violence Injunction or temporary restraining order.  We can help with both.

If you are charged with this type of offense or if someone is seeking an injunction against you, it is critically important that you have an attorney that is experienced and qualified in handling these matters.
