Domestic violence accusations may involve two court cases

Accusations of domestic violence are taken seriously by the courts. This is especially true when there are children involved in the situation. It is estimated that around 3 million children are witnesses to domestic violence each year. Some people don't realize that domestic violence matters, even accusations, can impact child custody.

Battling accusations of narcissism and domestic violence

Accusations of narcissism can make domestic violence cases difficult. This mental health condition causes a person to twist around situations to make it seem as though they are never wrong. Individuals who are truly narcissistic won't accept the blame for anything and always seem to have a reason to blame someone else.

Under a temporary protective order? Don't make these mistakes

Maryland judges can impose protective orders whenever there are allegations of domestic abuse between two people. While the initial order is temporary and you'll be soon allowed an opportunity to defend yourself in court, that's often cold comfort when you're under the restrictions imposed by the current order.

How might a domestic violence conviction affect your job search?

It's commonplace for many employers to perform background checks on individuals that they're looking to hire for openings no matter what type of position it is. It, therefore, shouldn't come as a surprise that a domestic violence conviction on your record may adversely impact your ability to land a job.

You have the right to defend yourself against a Protective Order

Maryland understands that domestic violence can imperil people across the state. Those afraid for their safety have the right to seek a Protective Order against someone in their family who is abusing or threatening them. Peace Orders apply to people with a different relationship, such as co-workers or dating partners.

Domestic violence defense options vary greatly

Domestic violence charges can come from a variety of situations in a relationship, but the long-term impacts of them are fairly universal. A person who faces these charges often has some very serious life consequences to deal with, many of which manifest before the person is convicted. Unfortunately, this is just because of society's perceptions of this type of situation.

Impacts of domestic violence accusations

Being accused of domestic violence is a serious matter. You can't just ignore the accusations, but it is difficult to figure out how to address all the life changes that will come just because of it. Some of the things you will have to handle might seem a bit ridiculous since you aren't convicted yet.

Types of domestic violence vary greatly

Many different actions constitute domestic violence. In the broadest sense, it is anything that enables one partner to have control over the other. Some people think about physical abuse, but that isn't the only type of domestic violence that can occur in close relationships.

Domestic violence charges can't be dropped by the victim

Things can sometimes get out of hand when you and your spouse argue. One thing that shouldn't ever happen is that the argument turns physical because this could mean that someone is going to jail. If you do find yourself in this situation, there are a few things that you need to remember.

Choose a domestic violence defense very carefully

Domestic violence accusations can come from a variety of situations. Not all of these are factual. There are instances in which people might make up stories or twist facts to try to get another person in trouble. False domestic violence accusations are a serious issue because they can have such a negative impact on the accused person's life.
