BRONX, NEW YORK DEFENSE LAWYER FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

 

FALSE DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGES

Each day hundreds of people across Bronx County and the surrounding areas are falsely accused of domestic violence. Here are some reasons why these false accusations occur. The first and most prevealent is a pending divorce or child custody battle between the parties. One party will accuse the other of domestic violence in order to gain a leg up in the family court proceedings. This causes the accused of having to defend himself in both criminal and family court. These expenses can completely overwhelm a person of medium income. The police and courts do nothing to stop these types of complaints and the accused will spend months and years defending themselves.

The next reason why false allegations are filed is because the accusers feels betrayed by the accused in some way. Usually this is due to a nasty break up or when a new romantic partner comes into the scene. This is plain and simple a revenge charge. The good news is that as time passes by the accuser usually loses interest and the case can be dismissed.

The last two categories are even more offensive. In The Bronx, if you accuse your partner of domestic violence you will be given priority on public housing and public assistance lists. As long as you keep claiming victimhood, the welfare authorities will assign you a caseworker and pay for all of your needs. This is the most offensive abuse of the system and it happens everyday.
