The term domestic violence refers to abusive behavior in any personal relationship that allows one partner to intimidate, or to gain power and control over the other. This is often thought of to occur between married spouses or in other intimate relationships but actually refers to any family relationship, or persons living in the same home.
Emotion, stress, and false allegations all complicate Domestic Violence law cases. Oftentimes, these cases involve no witnesses. This fact may lead to quick, uninformed decisions made by the police and/or prosecutor, which, in turn, may lead to an innocent party being formally charged.
Our team at Triton Legal PLC has the analytical skills to look at your case and see if the evidence fits the alleged crime. Do not attempt to handle a Domestic Violence case on your own, even if you believe the allegations are untrue. If you are not successful, you risk a variety of serious outcomes.
