Legal Defenses for Domestic Violence

Since some domestic violence crimes don’t need to have actual physical injuries, such as domestic battery, it’s common for people to be falsely accused. An intimate partner may want revenge or may be jealous and accuse you a domestic violence even if you’ve done nothing wrong.

Perhaps, your partner was injured by you, but it wasn’t intentional. In order to be guilty of domestic violence, you have to have the intent to injure the other person.

It’s possible that your partner became injured but it wasn’t by you.

If your partner started attacking you or someone else, and you acted in self-defense with reasonable force to stop them, then you should not be guilty of domestic violence.
