Domestic violence, also known as family violence, refers to a pattern of abusive behaviours used by one intimate partner to gain power and control over the other. It can occur within various types of relationships, including spouses or partners, parents and children, siblings, or other family members living together or in close proximity. These charges can encompass a range of criminal offences, such as assault, uttering threats, harassment, sexual assault, and more, when they occur within a personal relationship.
If you are facing domestic violence charges, our criminal defence lawyers can provide crucial assistance in protecting your rights and advocating for your best interests. They will meticulously analyze the evidence, interview witnesses, and build a robust defence strategy tailored to your unique circumstances. Our extensive experience will allow us to negotiate with prosecutors, explore alternative resolutions, and work toward the best possible outcome for your case.
In domestic violence cases, the prosecution often relies on the testimony of the alleged victim. However, a conviction cannot be solely based on this testimony. The court requires credible evidence and corroborating witnesses to establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Your defence lawyer will scrutinize the evidence, challenge inconsistencies, and present counterarguments to protect your rights.
Facing domestic violence charges may impact custody or visitation rights. The court’s priority is the safety and well-being of the children involved. Your criminal defence lawyer can advocate for your parental rights while ensuring the court considers the children’s best interests. They may also help you establish a plan to address any concerns raised during the legal process.
