Love in a relationship can die. This is often cited as a reason for ending a marriage or relationship. When fights and disputes occur, this too can be a natural course of a relationship ending. While some of these fights can get out of hand or aggressive, it is a serious accusation to make when a spouse claims the other spouse attacked him or her. Domestic abuse is a serious matter in Florida and elsewhere, and these types of allegations should also be treated seriously.
Being falsely accused of domestic violence could significantly impact the accused. It not only could result in a spouse being arrested, a protection order could be issued. This ultimately could seriously impact the divorce settlement and family law issues, such as child custody. At Kaylor Law Group, our experienced attorneys take these matters seriously.
