Taking a look at domestic violence statistics

If you have been charged with domestic violence, your life may have changed in many ways. For example, you may have been fired, or you could be unable to spend time with your children. To make matters even worse, many people have found themselves in this position over lies and false allegations. At the law office of Fried and Fried, P.A., we understand how challenging life can be for people who are facing domestic violence charges in Lee County, and other counties throughout Florida.

Between 2003 and 2013, 24 percent of percent domestic violence victims were men, while 76 percent were women, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. Even though most of these cases involve simple assault, there are a number of behaviors which may constitute domestic violence, such as robbery, rape and sexual assault.

In recent years, there has been a decrease in the number of domestic violence cases, but many people have had their lives shattered because of these allegations. During 2003 to 2012, most domestic violence victims were between the ages of 18 and 24. That said, domestic violence issues can affect couples belonging to all age groups.

If you are struggling with a domestic violence case that involves details which were exaggerated or simply untrue, you may wish to clear your name and move on. Unfortunately, these charges could haunt you in the future, which highlights the importance of carefully reviewing your options. If you visit the domestic violence page on our site, you will find information on restraining orders and other legal matters related to family violence.
