What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence counts as a pattern of abusive or violent behavior by a person seeking to control another person through dominance and force. Domestic violence can happen at any time and is a continuous action that constantly undermines a victim's confidence to leave the abusive person. Unfortunately, it is very common in the state of Florida.

Types of Domestic Violence in Florida

In Florida, Domestic violence refers to any kind of unlawful touching and can include offenses such as assault / battery, spousal abuse, false imprisonment, kidnapping, sexual battery, stalking, or any other offense that causes the physical injury or death of a family member, partner, or household member.

While numerous people hear “domestic violence” and instantly think of a man physically hurting a woman, it is not nearly that simple. Statistically, more women report men for the crime, but there are men whom the women in their lives abuse also.

Additionally, same-sex relationships also participate in relatively high occurrences of domestic violence.

What are the Penalties for Domestic Violence in Florida?

If you are facing conviction of domestic violence charges, you may be ordered to complete:

  • A 26 week batterer’s intervention program
  • Mandatory 12 months of probation
  • Additional community service
  • Loss of gun ownership rights
  • Or an injunction (or no contact) order

Domestic violence cases in Florida are complex, and their answers are not cut and dried. There is a great deal of favor spread to the victim in most cases.

However, if you face charges with a domestic violence case, you can’t afford to leave it to luck. You could face criminal penalties which may include:

  • Misdemeanor Charges: Simple domestic violence offenses are generally classified as misdemeanors. A conviction for misdemeanor domestic violence may result in penalties such as probation, fines, and mandatory attendance at batterer intervention programs.
  • Felony Charges: Aggravated domestic violence or repeat offenses may be classified as felonies. Felony domestic violence convictions carry more severe penalties, including imprisonment for a longer duration and higher fines.
