Domestic Violence Attorney in Stuart

Let ADL Law, P.A. Protect You From False Allegations

When police officers receive a report of domestic violence in Florida, they will almost always make an arrest. This is true even when the complainant does not wish to press charges and even if the officers cannot definitively prove that an act of domestic violence took place. The arresting officers often listen to the complainant, who could have either fabricated the story, exaggerated the facts, or been the abuser themselves.Woman covering face from person with clenched fist - Domestic Violence in Florida

In Florida, sexual assault, assault or battery, aggravated battery or assault, sexual battery, kidnapping, stalking, aggravated stalking, false imprisonment or even any other criminal offense that occurs and results in death or physical injury is domestic violence if it is committed between household or family members.

A “household or family member” includes:

  • People who share a child in common
  • People related by marriage
  • People related by blood
  • Former or current spouses
  • People who reside together or formerly lived together as a family

Domestic Violence Crimes & Punishments

Domestic violence occurs any time one family member commits a criminal offense against another family member resulting in the latter’s death or physical injury.

Examples of domestic violence:

  • Elderly abuse
  • Kidnapping and false imprisonment
  • Domestic assault and aggravated assault
  • Domestic battery and aggravated battery
  • Sexual battery, rape, and other sex offenses
