Domestic violence is one of the most serious criminal accusations that a person can face, largely due to the disastrous consequences this can have upon your family life and your reputation. You may lose custody of your children and may be forced to resort to minimal, supervised visits only.

Fighting Domestic Violence Charges in Fort Myers, Florida
The truth is that many domestic violence charges may arise from situations where an argument was blown out of proportion and the police were called to the scene. Once law enforcement becomes involved, they are more than likely to make an arrest. Once an arrest is made, it is entirely up to the prosecuting attorney to decide whether to press charges. Even if the victim wants to recant his or her statement or does not want to press charges, the prosecuting attorney will have the sole discretion of deciding whether to charge you with domestic violence.
Contact Finebloom & Haenel immediately to find out how you can fight your domestic violence charges and therefore avoid imprisonment, loss of custody and other serious consequences of a conviction.
