Florida Statute 741.28 Domestic violence; definitions.—
Domestic Violence in general/ Restraining orders/Criminal charges
One of the most common domestic violence crimes is a domestic violence battery. There are numerous defenses to domestic violence crimes. Sometimes the alleged victim fabricates allegations in order to kick their partner out of their home, get custody of the children. Domestic violence allegations are often seen while the parties are going through a divorce or separation, etc. Once a person is arrested for domestic violence, they will usually be ordered to stay away from the alleged victim or their home while the case is pending. In addition, many of the alleged victims will petition for an injunction (restraining order) that would prevent the defendant from contacting them.
