False accusations of domestic violence are hard to handle

There is never a good reason for a person to make false accusations against someone else. When these are regarding domestic violence, the person who is being accused will face a long battle to clear their name. One reason for this is that our society tends to have a guilty until proven innocent mindset instead of the innocent until proven guilty one that is the standard in the criminal justice system. We know that this can prove to be a challenging position for someone who knows they didn't do the horrible things of which they've been accused.

One of the most important things that you can do if you've been falsely accused of any crime, including domestic violence, is to work on your defense right away. This might hold the key to showing that you didn't do what that person says you did. We are here to help you learn about what options you might have for this.

As the case moves through the criminal justice system, you might find that you become more upset about the situation. This is understandable; however, you must ensure that you aren't letting your emotions get the best of you. How do you think it would appear to the jury, court or anyone else if you get violently upset about things? Considering the type of charge that domestic violence is, any outbursts are probably not a good idea.

Since you have to ensure that your case is based on fact, you will have to let us know what happened. We are here to help you piece together a defense that shows that you didn't get violent with your loved one.
