    What is Domestic Violence?

    Although many people think domestic violence only covers harm committed against a spouse, it actually covers the following types of abuse as well:

    • Sexual abuse
    • Emotional abuse
    • Financial abuse
    • Threats of physical violence
    • Harassment
    • Stalking

    Domestic violence laws also cover acts committed against the following parties:

    • Domestic partners
    • Ex-spouses
    • Children
    • Elders
    • Boyfriend or girlfriend

    Domestic violence is a serious crime that can result in either a misdemeanor or a felony conviction. If you or a loved one have experienced domestic violence, you should consult with our lawyers in Jacksonville. We can provide you with the legal advice and representation that you need to obtain the justice you deserve.

    What Are the Consequences of Domestic Violence?

    Domestic violence crimes carry harsh punishments, especially if the case involves physical injury or child abuse. Penalties for domestic violence include:

    • Court-ordered counseling
    • Probation
    • Jail time
    • Expensive fines
    • Rehabilitation if drugs or alcohol are involved
    • Registration as a sex offender if the case involves sexual abuse

    What is Considered Child Abuse in Florida?

    In addition to handling domestic violence cases, our family law firm is also dedicated to taking on child abuse cases throughout Jacksonville.

    • Emotional and psychological abuse
    • Abandonment and neglect
    • Child pornography

    Florida State ยง827.03(b) recognizes three ways to commit child abuse

    • Intentional infliction of physical or emotional harm to a child
    • Committing an intentional act that can reasonably be expected to result in a physical or emotional harm to a child
