Exploring Your Options for a Domestic Violence Lawyer Original post: Mon 6/27/2022 at 9:17 PM

Facing domestic violence charges is an incredibly serious accusation. In Florida, domestic violence charges vary greatly. They can include assault, sexual assault, battery, kidnapping, stalking, harassment, and much more.

While these charges can be very serious, you will remain innocent until proven guilty. Hiring an experienced domestic violence lawyer is the first step in defending yourself against domestic violence charges. Thereby protecting your future.

Here’s what you need to know about hiring a domestic violence lawyer in Florida.

The Penalty for Domestic Violence in Florida

The Florida courts recently increased the minimum mandatory sentence for domestic violence. For the most minor charges, you will almost certainly face prison time.

For repeat offenses, people with a criminal record, and more serious charges, you could face several years in prison. Penalties can also include fines, counseling, an injunction of protection, and community service. Even misdemeanor crimes can result in prison time.

Some acts that you may not consider domestic violence will fall under domestic charges. If a crime is deemed to be domestic, the penalty automatically increases.

And Domestic crimes don't have to take place at home. Crimes include stalking an ex-partner or threatening another member of your household with a weapon. Domestic violence includes extended family, non-married partners, and anyone living as a family or sharing a child.

In recent years, the crackdown on domestic violence has led to increased penalties. So you may not be aware of how seriously the charges are being taken by the courts.

To gather an effective defense, you need to work with an experienced domestic violence lawyer. You may be facing many varied charges; you need someone who understands the different types of domestic violence charges.

To prove domestic violence charges in court, the prosecutor must meet the burden of proof. This means they need enough evidence to ensure a conviction. The more evidence the prosecution can gather, the more jail time you face.

The current social pressure to bring justice for domestic violence victims means you need a good defense. Without an experienced lawyer on your side, you are putting your future at risk.
