Have You Been Accused of Domestic Battery?
By law, domestic battery is defined as the touching of a family member when they do not consent to such an action. This is usually understood as a violent action that results in severe bodily harm to the family member or fellow resident within the household and is a severe crime that is taken gravely seriously by law enforcement and courts alike. It is sad, however, to realize that not all charges of domestic battery are founded in real abuse, and can rather be a false accusation.
There are unfortunately many cases where a family member will accuse another of domestic battery out of jealousy, revenge, or even just to gain the upper hand in a divorce/family law issue. You should not, however, have to suffer from these wrongful accusations.
