In the state of Florida, domestic violence is all-encompassing. Under the law, "domestic violence means any assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another family or household member."
A "family or household member" includes spouses, former spouses, children, relatives and even those simply residing together, married or not.
Facing a domestic violence charge relating to any of these instances within the state of Florida is nothing to take lightly. Restraining orders and other consequences — both short-term and long-term — are likely.
Consulting with an attorney as soon as possible is advised.
