Florida Spousal Abuse Lawyer
The state of Florida has adopted much stricter laws surrounding spousal abuse, and the police will nearly always make an arrest, even when the party making the complaint refuses to press charges. If an arrest is made, the Office of the State Attorney will determine whether to dismiss the case or bring formal charges. Whether the complainant wants no charges to be made, the state is the controlling interest in the determination. Indeed, some convictions in spousal abuse in Florida have been upheld even when the complainant, or victim, failed to appear in court. If the state can prove the spousal abuse occurred by other means, the victim’s testimony may not be relevant.
