Orange False Accusation of Domestic Violence Lawyer
What Are My Legal Options?
Over one million false accusations of domestic violence are filed each year. Once there is an allegation, police are trained to take the perpetrator into custody, even if they have their doubts about the truth of the allegation. While an accusation of domestic violence comes with the threat of jail time, the damage that the accusation can do to a person’s good name or career can hurt as well.
A false accusation of domestic violence has become a piece of gamesmanship of divorce. It can lead to a restraining order and cause fallout in the courts in cases of child custody. If found guilty of the accusation, a parent could find themselves stripped of all child custody.
Our Orange County attorneys at Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson, APLC have the experience to help both men and women facing domestic violence charges, whether they are real or false. Call us at (714) 633-8258 or contact us online.
What If I’m Guilty?
Domestic violence is a serious charge. Domestic violence is a felony and could carry a penalty of up to four years in prison. However, jail time can be avoided, and that is why you need a knowledgeable legal team behind you.
Sometimes completing programs such as anger management can help to lessen the blow dealt by the courts, possibly even resulting in suspended sentences, so that you serve no jail time. Our attorneys will work vigorously to explore all options to help you, and make sure you take the course of action that is right for you.
