Domestic violence accusations can come from a variety of situations. Not all of these are factual. There are instances in which people might make up stories or twist facts to try to get another person in trouble. False domestic violence accusations are a serious issue because they can have such a negative impact on the accused person’s life.

It can be maddening to think about having to face accusations that aren’t true. You have to be careful not to allow your anger get the best of you. The issue that can occur if you do react in a violent manner is that this might reflect negatively on your character, so you need to be very careful with what you do when you find out about the accusations.

As you are thinking about the defense you are going to use, you have to think about how it will be perceived. One thing that you must be especially careful about is that you don’t make it seem like you are trying to attack the accuser in court. For this reason, you have to think carefully about everything that you do. You can’t say or do anything that might make the jurors think that you are trying to diminish the person’s character.

We know that it is hard to think about the situation, but you know that you can’t ignore the case. We are here to help you learn about the options that you have and discern how they might be perceived. Putting together a strategy that shows your side of the matter in a constructive way is critical if you are going to fight the charges.
