Tampa Domestic Violence Lawyers
Too many people fail to realize how serious domestic violence charges can be. Even if the person who called the police or made the complaint decides not to pursue the charges, that does not mean the charges will be dropped. The accuser can sign a waiver of prosecution, but the state may still pursue the case.
At Gomez & Touger, P.A., we are experienced criminal defense lawyers and former state prosecutors. We know how the state prosecutes domestic abuse cases and how to fight the charges. We can also help you with restraining order violations. To schedule a free consultation with our Tampa domestic violence attorneys, please call .
Domestic Abuse Charges And Restraining Order Violations
Domestic violence can happen between spouses, between family members, or between people in a relationship who lived together at one time and/or have children together. In Florida, people may file an injunction for protection against domestic violence after only one incident. If the accused violates the order, he or she can be arrested.
If a restraining order is taken out against you and you agree to it, you are agreeing to the restraining order being on your permanent record. This will affect your future job opportunities and your right to possess firearms. It is better to speak with a lawyer first so we can advise you of your rights and take action to protect them.
When a couple is in a contentious divorce or child custody battle, one person may make false domestic violence accusations to try to influence the family law judge. If you have been falsely accused, we will work to resolve the issue and clear your name.
