Sarasota Domestic Violence Attorney
There is no question that domestic violence is a serious social problem today. Verbal threats and physical contact between spouses, significant others and family members are now prosecuted with great vigor. The initial results of these types of cases cause great trauma to families because of the arrest, “no contact” provisions of release orders and the delay in final disposition of these matters.
Domestic Violence Accusations as Leverage in a Divorce
Accusations of domestic violence are oftentimes true. Many times, however, we have represented clients who are falsely accused of abuse as a ploy in a divorce proceeding.
