Orlando Spousal Abuse Attorney
Our Domestic Violence Lawyer Can Help Defend You
While most couples dream of the perfect marriage, there are a large number
of spouses who tend to get into heated arguments. Unfortunately, these
alterations can lead to physical or emotional injury caused by one spouse
unto the other. When this situation arises, the aggressor is often charged
with spousal abuse. This is a serious charge that requires skilled legal
representation from an Orlando spousal abuse attorney. This is when you can
call Mazin Law.
Once you have been charged, you are typically placed on a restraining order.
You will be denied any contact with your abused spouse and will be ordered
to complete a batterer’s intervention program. The other penalties
you will face will depend upon whether you caused serious bodily harm,
whether these acts have been continual, and whether you have a history
of abusive behavior.
Defenses That Could be Available to You
If you have been charged with spousal abuse in Orlando, there could be
defenses available to you including:
- The incident did not rise to the level of criminal spousal abuse
- The complaint was motivated by revenge or a desire for leverage in a divorce case
- Alcohol and drug abuse and their role in a domestic dispute
A large number of charges related to spousal abuse are considered misdemeanors
and the penalties can include 6 months to a year in jail. In some instances,
you could be charged with a felony and face an extended period of time
in prison, especially if there was a weapon present during the altercation.
