Domestic violence charges are serious cases. If you are facing an arrest or are accused of this crime, you may have a million things running through your mind at this moment. One of the best decisions you can make is hiring an experienced domestic violence lawyer that can advise you and help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
If law enforcement is on the scene, you have no control of the situation. Even if the alleged victim does not what to press any charges, it is the prosecutor alone that decides on whether or not to continue with the case against you. A domestic violence criminal defense lawyer is your best option to represent your case.
Another factor to consider is the presence of a restraining order. If the alleged victim sought for one, you will be prohibited from being close – or even contacting – him or her. If you and the alleged victim were married, the restraining order can apply to your children, too. You will also be forced to move out of the residence, if you’re sharing it with the alleged victim.
If this is the case – it’s still not too late. You are entitled to have a hearing after the restraining order is served. This hearing is crucial in determining whether the order is justified or not. If you have a lawyer representing you at this point, an effective and compelling defense can lift the restraining order.

Defending you against False Accusations
Believe it or not, false accusations win in court more often than you think. Some who are prosecuted are actually innocent. If you have been in a heated argument with someone in your household, it is possible for law enforcement to step in. It is easy for that other person to “claim” that you threatened or attacked him/her.
There are similar instances wherein serious accusations of crime (such as child abuse) are pressed against former partners or spouses. This is common if the other party is trying to get some advantage during a custody battle for the child.
