Miami, Florida Domestic Violence Attorney
What is domestic violence? There are two types of domestic violence cases.
Civil domestic violence cases usually involve an injunction or a restraining order which bars a person from contacting another or causing any harm.
Criminal domestic violence cases involve any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another who is or was residing in the same single dwelling unit.
The Meltz Law Firm has extensive experience in aggressively defending domestic violence cases including:
- Assault/Aggravated assault
- Battery/Aggravated battery
- Sexual Assault/Sexual Battery
- Stalking/Aggravated stalking
- Kidnapping/False imprisonment
As much as domestic violence is an extremely serious crime, so are the penalties. Under Florida Law, if a person is found guilty or who pleads guilty to a crime of domestic violence (including misdemeanors), that person shall be ordered by the Court to a minimum term of 1 year's probation. Additionally, the Court shall order that the defendant attend a 26 week Batterers' Intervention Program as a condition of probation.Criminal Attorney Miami
