Domestic violence is a horrible crime that happens with disturbing frequency in the U.S. and worldwide. While the majority of these cases come to light thanks to victims who are brave enough to speak the truth, others are less factual. In fact, roughly 1.5 million temporary restraining orders are issued in the U.S. every year that are either trivial or false.
If you have been accused of domestic violence that you didn’t commit, that doesn’t mean that you’re safe. Be sure to get in touch with a domestic abuse lawyer who understands the law and how to keep you protected. You’ll also want to get to work immediately collecting any evidence available that proves your innocence. Along with evidence, gathering key witnesses who can testify to your character is of utmost importance. Better, yet, try to find individuals who were present for a certain event or exchange between you and your accuser.
