Defenses to Claims of Spousal Abuse

The statistics to claims of spousal abuse vary, but one thing that does not is the intensity with which these claims are pursued. Prosecution and law enforcement crack down heavily on those charged with spousal abuse. Unfortunately, not all these claims are legitimate, but can still have negative and life-changing effects on the accused. Not only could you be facing serious legal repercussions, but you could also experience strained personal and professional relationships.

When selecting a firm, you want to be sure that they will leave no stone unturned in their pursuit of the best possible outcome on your behalf. While the defenses available to you will vary with your circumstances, there are several options to consider.

Some of the defenses you might be able to utilize include:

  • Exaggeration of Events: In some cases, a typical tiff could be blown out of proportion, resulting in the arrest of one or both parties.
  • Falsification of Events: In many cases, spousal abuse charges come out of the blue, even if there is no evidence or history of violence to back it up.
  • Self-Defense: You might not have been the instigator in a fight and had to protect yourself from your spouse. Still, charges can be filed against you.
  • Heat of the Moment Action: This defense may help reduce charges by proving that you did not have the intention of harming anyone, but were provoked to action.
