Family situations can be tense, and sometimes they can lead to eruptions of emotion that have consequences. Spouses or exes may use charges of domestic abuse to gain control in situations involving child custody, or even as a way to create space during conflict. If you were charged with domestic violence, you need to act immediately to avoid having protective orders put in place against you.

Why Partners File Claims

When family situations become complicated, people can do irrational things because they aren’t sure what else to do. Unfortunately, once law enforcement arrives, there is no time to change your mind and open up communication. Someone will be arrested in order to protect the other person.

Following an arrest, our team may be able to help you show that:

  • You were preventing abuse by the other person
  • You were falsely charged in order to lose child custody
  • You are not the person that committed the alleged crime
  • There is no proof of the allegations against you

If you were charged with domestic violence, you may be facing a protective order against you that will bar you from being within a certain distance from those specified in the order. This can make it nearly impossible to carry on life as usual, requiring you to find a new place to live, put your things, and operate from.
