Holidays come with an uptick in domestic violence accusations

Domestic violence is a problem all year long. However, it seems as though it spikes during the holiday season. Unfortunately, the holiday season comes with considerable stress. This can lead to more incidents of domestic violence. Some individuals might think that having family around offers a buffer of protection, but this isn't necessarily true.

When you have the stress of the holiday and add alcohol to the mix, confrontations might go downhill quickly. In many cases, these are resolved before they become physical. It is important for anyone who is having a disagreement with a family member to try to handle it in a peaceful and non-violent way. These arguments aren't worth having to go to jail.

One thing to realize is that even though there is a spike in the number of reports that come during this season, especially on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, there is still a chance that people will be falsely accused of harming their loved one. This is something that has to be taken very seriously because there is a chance that these individuals could have their entire life ruined all because someone reacted to a disagreement in a negative manner.

For men and women who are facing accusations of domestic violence this holiday season, it's essential to have a strong defense strategy. You have to look at the circumstances that led to the charges and think about how you can show your side of the story. A Maryland attorney who is experienced in handling domestic violence cases can provide valuable guidance and work to protect your rights.
