In Florida, domestic violence is something that can happen between family members or between people who used to live together and/or have children together. It can include acts of violence and threats of violence. If you are facing domestic violence charges, you must take immediate action to protect your rights. Being found liable or guilty in a domestic violence setting can have serious implications on your ability to get a job or find a place to live.

These are very serious matters that can have a negative impact on the rest of your life. Ask Allison how she can resolve these issues before they escalate and take on a life of their own. Whether you are facing criminal charges, or a petition for temporary injunction in domestic violence court, we will be at your side and defend your rights to the end.

At Gilman & Associates, P.A., our experienced criminal defense lawyers understand the serious nature of domestic violence charges. We will explain your rights and make sure that you are not unjustly charged or penalized. As an all-female firm, we provide a unique presence in the courtroom that can be advantageous for clients. Please call our office at 954-763-3453 or 954-763-3453 to schedule a consultation with our Fort Lauderdale domestic violence defense attorneys.

Domestic Violence Allegations And Restraining Orders

The alleged domestic violence victim may file an injunction for protection/restraining order against you. If you violate the order, you can be arrested and possibly put in jail. This can have a serious impact on your ability to find gainful employment or a place of residence. Many employers will not hire a person found to be liable in a domestic violence injunction situation.

Restraining orders can have serious consequences. Depending on the circumstances of the case, a restraining order can become part of your permanent record, affecting future job opportunities and your right to possess firearms. We recommend talking with a lawyer immediately so we can advise you of your rights and work to protect them. Domestic violence restraining orders are also public record. Anyone doing a background check can see the accusations made against you and the results of the case. While the record cannot be sealed, except in certain criminal situations, we can protect you and see that a minimal amount of information is in the record.

With our experience in family law, we know that people sometimes make false domestic violence allegations to try to affect the outcome of contentious divorce or child custody cases. If you have been falsely accused of domestic violence, we can help you fight the charges and protect your relationship with your family.

If you are the victim in a domestic violence situation, we encourage you to call us so we may help you obtain a restraining order. After you call the police, call us to help guide you through the domestic violence maze.
