In the State of Florida there are various types of Domestic Violence Crimes that an individual may be charged with. Domestic violence crimes involve various forms of violence, threats, and sometimes perceived threats against a victim that was previously or currently in a relationship with. Domestic violence crimes may extend to victims that are related to, or in a current relationship with an individual of a current or past relationship. Family members are also covered under domestic violence laws.

Throughout the years we have seen many instances of one person alleging claims of domestic violence against another out of spite or a deliberate effort to gain an advantage in divorce, child custody and visitation, or other non-related legal disputes.

Some forms of domestic violence crimes require the prosecution to prove intent, others may involve the prosecution showing an established of behavior on the accused’s part. At the heart of every domestic violence case is the burden of proof that the accused actually committed the alleged domestic violence crime, and that the alleged victim has made a valid domestic violence claim that is beyond dispute.
