Dropping Your Charges Your Future is Too Important to Risk

Dropping Domestic Violence Charges Florida

Guidance from a Tampa Domestic Violence Lawyer

If you have been arrested for domestic violence, you may be feeling considerable worry and concern over the final outcome of the situation. After all, you are at risk of being sent to jail, fined and placed on probation, in addition to the possibility of losing child timesharing or visitation rights, being denied the right to own a firearm and living under the shadow of a criminal record. No doubt your primary concern is on having the charges against you dropped quickly and with as little damage as possible to your reputation.

Hiring a Tampa domestic violence defense lawyer to represent you and fight the charges is the most important action you can take at this point in the case. There is practically nothing you can personally say to investigators or to the prosecutor what will improve the situation-they already believe you are guilty, and would only use statements you make to add to the evidence. You need a dedicated advocate who will defend your rights and work to clear your name.

How to Drop Domestic Violence Charges in Florida

Perhaps you and your spouse or significant other have patched things up and the alleged victim does not wish to press charges against you, but this is not enough to resolve the matter. Despite the fact that your loved one may have set the process in motion by calling the police, the other party has no authority to drop the charges. What started out as a private matter between the two of you, the case is now in the hands of the criminal justice system, as you are being charged with a crime against the State.

Your spouse or significant other may be able to assist in having the charges dropped by speaking with the State Attorney, but should only do so with the help of a lawyer to avoid inadvertently making the situation worse by saying things that would further incriminate you. If you are currently subject to an order of protection, you should not even be speaking with the alleged victim, even if you were not the one who initiated contact-being caught in violation of the order could result in another arrest and make it impossible to have the charges dropped.
