It is important that you hire an experienced, aggressive, and skilled criminal defense attorney to defend your rights during this difficult time.

If you have been accused of domestic violence charges such as assault, battery, stalking, or violation of injunction in Florida, contact us immediately so we can evaluate your case and advise you of your legal rights.

What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is a form of abuse that involves people who know each other, such as partners, spouses, ex-spouses, parents and children, or boyfriends and girlfriends. Often, an individual charged with or accused of domestic violence or spousal abuse is viewed as guilty by the public or a family based on the arrest, rather than the facts of the situation. 

Domestic violence is defined in Florida Statute 741.28 as “any assault, battery, sexual assault, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another who is or was residing in the same single dwelling unit.”

Domestic violence can be divided into three main categories: Physical abuse, verbal abuse, and sexual abuse. Physical abuse would be a physical assault such as pushing, slapping, kicking, choking, and beating. Verbal abuse would be akin to intimidating conversations followed by acting with anger and stalking. Sexual abuse is unwanted sexual touching or forced sexual acts. 

Convictions for domestic violence may seriously impact your family relationships, your employment, and your standing in the community. 

If you are facing domestic violence charges in Florida, you should contact an experienced Stuart domestic violence attorney at Lance P. Richard, P.A. for a consultation.
