The four forms of domestic abuse were our topic for last week's blog. Those forms show just how widespread allegations of domestic abuse can be. When it comes to domestic violence accusations, it is vital that you take those accusations seriously because they can affect every aspect of your life.
When you have been accused of domestic violence, you might face proceedings in civil court and criminal court. Both courts have serious penalties that can make your life difficult. From the start, you will likely have to make some serious life changes because if an order of protection is issued you won't be able to go home as long as that order is in place. If you have children, that order usually means that you won't be able to see the children for a while.
