What Should I Do If I Am Falsely Accused Of Domestic Violence?
There may be no greater betrayal than having a spouse or partner wrongly accuse you of domestic violence or domestic abuse – and it often leads overwhelming feelings of embarrassment, fear, anger, and hurt. However, while it can be easy to become paralyzed by your emotions, it is vital to act quickly and calmly to your charges. First and foremost, you should speak to a Washington State domestic violence attorney who can help you fight the charges and build your own case. Next, collect any evidence that you can and make a list of witnesses who may be able to shed light on your innocence. Finally, remember to stay calm and focused: while anger and bitterness are natural reactions to such horrible accusations, these feelings will only hinder your fight.
