The Definition of Domestic Violence is Broader Than You May Realize

Domestic violence is not limited to physical harm. It encompasses various forms of abuse, such as emotional, verbal, psychological and financial abuse. The Florida criminal justice system takes domestic violence allegations seriously, as it should. Protecting victims from harm is a top priority. However, it’s also essential to ensure that the accused receives fair treatment and a proper legal defense.

What is a Restraining Order?

A restraining order is a court order that prohibits one party from contacting another party. A restraining order can be issued against you when you are accused of domestic violence. If a restraining order is issued against you, it could greatly disrupt your life. It may force you out of a shared home with the alleged victim. It could prevent you from seeing your children. It can significantly limit your freedom of movement. Needless to say, it’s critical to seek an attorney’s help to contest the issuance of a long-term order.
