Florida Domestic Violence Lawyer

Sadly, abuse and violence at home occurs more often than one could think. That said, Florida domestic violence law lacks specific charges for domestic assault or battery. Where charges are concerned, penalties face the same degree of prosecution as any other assault.

Florida Domestic Violence Resources

Florida defines domestic violence as a series of acts committed by one family or household member against another family or household member. Violent acts range from:

  • Assault or battery, or aggravated assault or battery
  • Sexual assault
  • Sexual battery
  • Stalking, or aggravated stalking
  • Kidnapping
  • False imprisonment
  • Any criminal occurrence resulting in injury or death

A family or household member includes spouses, anyone related to you either by blood or marriage, anyone you’ve lived with as a family, or parents with a child. The involved persons must either currently live in a single dwelling as a family, or have previously lived together. The exception to this is parents who have a child in common. 

Our legal firm at LJ Law Group knows how to navigate the criminal justice situation, as well as the delicate situations a domestic violence charge can create.

A criminal charge is an incredibly stressful situation that puts your livelihood and reputation at stake. Hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer can make all the difference between whether you face a jail sentence, or maintain your freedom.

Diffusing a Domestic Disturbance

Everybody deserves to feel safe at home. If you’re the victim of domestic assault or believe you’ll become one, our legal firm at LJ Law Group is here to help. We can help you file an injunction to protect both you and your children. As your Florida domestic violence lawyer, we’ll help you receive the relief you need to live a safe and happy life. 

That includes proving support for your children, restraining the respondent from committing acts of violence, and gaining you access to treatment.

However, this is a difficult situation and all too often people are wrongly accused. When police are called to the scene of a domestic disturbance, they’re preoccupied with diffusing the situation and make an arrest without fully understanding what occurred. Since Florida law doesn’t differentiate standard or domestic assault charges, once charges have been filed, there’s no way to have the charges dropped.

Custody disputes have also commonly been situations for false accusations being made. It’s not an unheard-of occurrence for children to be coached by one spouse to say or act in ways to implicate someone with wrongful, criminal behavior.

At LJ Law Group, we strive to bring out the truth in these situations to protect those at risk and ensure a safe, happy existence for your children and loved ones.
