Falsely Accused for Domestic Violence in Miami?
Defendant Falsely Accused of Domestic Violence
Anyone accused of domestic violence, even when innocent, needs to be aware of the potential harsh consequences if found guilty by the courts. A person convicted could lose:
- Parental rights
- Contact with family and children
- Their freedom
In Florida, the state can pursue criminal charges against an accused offender even over the protest of the alleged victim. Allegations of domestic violence can lead to an arrest and most like an order of protection or a restraining order filed against the accused offender.

What if I am Falsely Accused of Committing a Domestic Violence Offense?
Unfortunately, certain types of situations such as a bitter divorce or custody battle with an ex-spouse can be impacted by accusations of domestic violence. Even if you are innocent and have never been violent, you will still have to deal with the charges and defending yourself. This issue must be addressed with great skill - a conviction will be a personal disaster. As only the prosecuting attorney can drop the charges, even if your former spouse later admits to exaggerating the situation, the case could progress.
Foremost, you should not try to contact the victim or plaintiff under any circumstances. Do not try to telephone, text, send a letter or email, send flowers or gifts, or get someone else to contact the plaintiff for you. Do not go to the place of employment, school, or other location where the plaintiff may be located.
It does not matter whether you are falsely accused, it important to refrain from making contact in any form. It is probable there is a temporary restraining order and that prohibits any attempts to contact the plaintiff/victim. A violation of a restraining order is a serious offense in itself.
Defense Against False Accusations of Domestic Abuse
Out of spite, to get even, or for other reasons, family members or household members sometimes make false accusations against other members for alleged crimes of assault, battery, sexual assault, kidnapping, child abuse, spousal rape, or other crimes of domestic violence. In highly contested divorces, the spouses may accuse each other of all sorts of alleged wrongdoings.
It is vital to have your attorney represent your best interests and provide a vigorous defense. The prosecution must prove the intention to inflict harm to the plaintiff/victim. The defense can challenge evidence and provide witness statements, police reports, doctor reports, and other available means to prove the innocence of the accused. As a former prosecutor, Mr. Mirer, understand the methods used by prosecutors to build cases. He brings that valuable experience and insight to each case the law office defends.
