Domestic violence crimes are a hot topic in many communities in Orlando, throughout Central Florida, and across the country due to an increase of media exposure and political pressure to address and reduce domestic violence offenses. This increased awareness of domestic violence issues has led to a more aggressive approach in prosecuting any allegation of a domestic violence crime.

Unfortunately, this has also resulted in many innocent people facing domestic violence charges which are unwarranted, as well as those who are falsely accused of domestic violence in the heat of the moment. The best defense of against an accusation of a domestic violence crime is to seek legal representation of an experienced domestic violence lawyer.

Our Central Florida criminal defense attorneys have years of experience handling domestic violence cases in Orlando and throughout Florida and will be able to answer your questions and let you know what you can expect as the process unfolds and your case makes its way through the court system.

Often times, the first issue that needs to be addressed in a domestic violence case is the issue of bond and/or conditions of pre-trial release. It is common for the courts to enter a bond order forbidding the Defendant to have any contact with the alleged victim and even requiring the Defendant to maintain a separate residence, meaning that you cannot return home while your case is pending. In some cases, the court will even require a Defendant to wear an ankle monitor or be subject to some sort of G.P.S. monitoring. These conditions of bond can be costly and present very real financial and logistical problems for the family. The Florida domestic violence attorneys at Dicembre Law in Orlando have a successful track record of helping individuals accused of domestic violence modify their conditions of bond so that they may return home or have certain approved contact with their family while their case is pending.
