False Allegations Can Still Have Real Consequences
Allegations of domestic violence are very serious. The police department takes immediate action and begins investigating the accusations. Arrests are often made before an investigation is even complete. When allegations were falsely made, alleged offenders must now deal with the consequences of something they did not do.
Unfortunately, false allegations in domestic violence cases are all too common. If you have been accused of domestic violence, you should have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side who can stand up for your rights. At the Fort Lauderdale law office of Andrew M. Coffey, P.A., I use my extensive criminal defense experience to provide representation to clients throughout Florida dealing with false domestic violence violations.
If you believe the domestic violence accusations made against you are false, take immediate action and seek legal counsel to ensure that your rights are protected. For a free initial consultation, please call 954-406-9272 or contact me online.
Reasons False Allegations Are Made
Individuals often file false claims of domestic violence in order to gain leverage in a situation, such as attempting to gain the upper hand in a child custody dispute or other family law matter. Also, retaliation may be a motive, with a girlfriend making claims in order to get back at a boyfriend or an individual taking action against an acquaintance for supposedly wronging the individual. Regardless of the basis of the claim, if it is discovered to be false, it should not be pursued against you. I work hard to see that justice is done on behalf of my clients and that the truth is uncovered.
It is essential that clients understand the impact that any type of domestic violence accusations may have on their lives, their ability to be in their homes and their ability to be with their children. Often, clients accused of domestic violence are barred from returning home, and a restraining order may be established, prohibiting contact with the alleged victim.
