What is Domestic Violence in Florida?

According to Florida law, domestic violence is a criminal offense committed against another “member of the family” that results in injury or death. A member of the family includes a spouse, former spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend, other blood or marriage family member, or any other child or adult that shares a residence or used to share a residence.

Even though domestic violence is typically used to categorize criminal offenses between individuals that live together, if the victim and the defendant share a child, they do not need to have resided in the same location to be charged with domestic violence.

Criminal offenses that can be considered domestic violence include:

  • Assault
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Battery
  • Kidnapping
  • Stalking
  • Cyberstalking

Our Tallahassee domestic violence attorney has extensive experience representing various domestic violence charges. If you or your loved one has been charged with domestic violence, you can feel confident entrusting our criminal defensefirm with your case.

A conviction for a domestic violence charge can impact your entire life. Due to the severity of violent crime charges, penalties are usually harsh and life-changing. If you face domestic violence charges, you must seek reliable legal counsel to represent you.

Penalties vary based on specific details of your case, including the kind of charge, whether or not a weapon was used, who the victim was, the age of the victim, and the criminal history of the defendant. Based on these factors, a defendant can face charges ranging from a misdemeanor to a felony.
