Every year, countless accusations of domestic violence are made without adequate grounds. Spouses, partners, and even children can be quick to accuse an individual out of fear or anger. Bitter spouses and other members of the household may file charges simply out of spite, attempting to punish the accused when they do not deserve it. Anyone who has been wrongfully accused of domestic abuse should consult with a Portland criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible to learn what legal options are available to them regarding their defense.
Before an individual can be charged with domestic violence, a police officer must conduct a pre-charge investigation. Unless there is evidence of domestic violence or any other grounds to file charges, you cannot be arrested for abusing a member of your household. That is why it is vital to retain a defense attorney as soon as you have been accused of domestic violence. Your lawyer will be able to defend you during the investigation and may be able to prevent charges from being filed in the first place. If charges are filed, your choice of a defense attorney will be the difference between successful defense and a conviction.
