What Constitutes Abuse?
Charges of spousal abuse and domestic violence can stem from acts of aggression
that cause harm or threats which cause a spouse to fear for their safety.
This can include acts such as physically striking another person to attempting
to control the actions of a spouse through coercion. Once an accusation
of abuse has been made, a police officer can arrest a suspect if they
believe that a continued threat to the victim exists or there is evidence
of physical harm. Accusations of abuse alone can be enough to tarnish
a reputation and it is critical to enlist the support of a knowledgeable
attorney from our firm as soon as possible.
