Defending Against False Accusations of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is defined as any act inflicted by one member of a household that results in emotional or physical injury of another member of the household. Accordingly, domestic violence is aggressively prosecuted in Texas courts in order to protect the victims of these attacks. As such, it is a frightening occurrence when a person is falsely accused of domestic violence as the consequences upon conviction can be harsh. The frustration and confusion of being falsely accused of domestic violence and suddenly facing the legal penalties of a conviction can be distressing. If you find yourself in this situation, do not hesitate to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

Reasons for False Accusations of a Spouse

A spouse, in particular, may choose to falsely accuse their partner of domestic violence for several reasons, defaming them and putting them at risk of serious legal consequences. The following are common reasons to defame a spouse:

  • Gain custody of child
  • Acquire upper-hand in divorce
  • Avoid legal fees
  • Financial gain

Heated debates between a couple can lead to innocent individuals being wrongfully accused of the heinous crime of domestic violence.
