Every couple and every family, no matter how much they love each other, fights on occasion. Arguments simply are a part of every relationship; however, if any physical contact is allegedly made during an argument, accusations of domestic violence could follow. For good reason, Florida laws regarding domestic violence situations are strict. As such, those accused of this behavior could greatly benefit from seeking an experienced attorney who will give the case the attention it deserves.
Domestic violence is defined as violent behavior exhibited within the home, which is generally aimed at a spouse or partner. While in many circumstances these situations occur between the couple, children are sometimes subjected to physical abuse as well. It doesn't matter whether any physical contact was actually made during a fight, all it takes is one individual saying that it did for an arrest to be made.
