Not sure why you are accused or what’s next? We can help.
You may be scratching your head trying to figure out how and why you have been accused of domestic violence. Your accuser (aka the other person), may have called the police because they wanted the cops just to “talk to you”, “teach a lesson” or even as a threat. Once this is in motion the state will not drop the case, even if the other person does not want the case prosecuted.
The truth is that once the police are called, one person will automatically be labeled the villain and the other the victim, and leads to the officers missing important details and lost evidence in your case. This is often a knee-jerk decision that can have devastating consequences for you, your family, and job. It’s unfair and your first instinct may be that you will be able to easily get the case dismissed by simply explaining your side of the story. Sadly, this path will most likely not result in a dismissal of the case because the state will assume that you are trying to get out of trouble. Having the other party make a statement will likewise be looked at as unconvincing because the state will just assume the other party is just trying to get you out of trouble. This may seem hopeless in that no matter what you do; no one will believe you and the state is going to label you as an abuser.
