There is never a good reason for a person to make false accusations against someone else. When these are regarding domestic violence, the person who is being accused will face a long battle to clear their name. One reason for this is that our society tends to have a guilty until proven innocent mindset instead of the innocent until proven guilty one that is the standard in the criminal justice system. We know that this can prove to be a challenging position for someone who knows they didn’t do the horrible things of which they’ve been accused.

One of the most important things that you can do if you’ve been falsely accused of any crime, including domestic violence, is to work on your defense right away. This might hold the key to showing that you didn’t do what that person says you did. We are here to help you learn about what options you might have for this.
