False Accusations of Domestic
Anaheim Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer
statistics provided by the California Department of Justice, there were 166,361 reports of
domestic violence called in to police in the state of California in the year 2010. Of this
number, just under 40% involved a weapon such as a firearm, knife, or
other dangerous weapon. Domestic abuse - Including
spousal abuse and
child abuse - is not something to be taken lightly; however, it is important to note
that many accusations of domestic violence are entirely false. If you
have been falsely accused, our Anaheim domestic violence lawyer wants to help.
Examples of False Accusations
Individuals are known to lash out in times of anger or distress, which
is often the case with accusations of domestic violence. For example,
two spouses get into a heated argument and have a falling out. As a means
of retaliation or vengeance, one of the spouses calls the police and claims
that the other spouse
threatened their life or abused them in some way. When an officer arrives on the scene, they
may arrest the alleged offender, but official charges cannot be filed
until an investigation has been made to determine whether there are grounds
for such charges.
A bitter or angry spouse, family member, or cohabitant may also attempt
to obtain a restraining order by going to court and petitioning a judge.
A temporary order may be granted, but a permanent order will not be granted
without proper evidence that the accused did abuse the alleged victim.
It can be very difficult to prove that domestic violence actually occurred,
which in turn makes it even more difficult to succeed in pressing false
charges. If you have been falsely accused of domestic abuse, get the counsel
