Understanding the Consequences of Domestic Abuse Allegations

The domestic violence law is one of the most necessary and yet most abused statutes in Maryland. Some people have a true need for protection from terrible abuse. Others misuse the law in order to force their spouses out of the home and gain an advantage in divorce cases.

If you are considering making a domestic violence accusation or have been served with a protective order, we strongly encourage you to talk to an attorney as soon as possible.

Alleged perpetrators of domestic violence may lose custody of their children, and they may be required to pay emergency family maintenance, including spousal support and child support. They may also face criminal charges and lose their security clearance and right to possess firearms.

All of these elements of the law play an important role in protecting the victims of domestic violence, but they also mean that domestic violence allegations must be taken extremely seriously. Our attorneys are experienced at representing parties on both sides of this issue.
