COVID-19 & Its Influence on Domestic Violence Accusations

couple having disagreement

The nation is taking a heavy hit economically, socially and medically due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Public officials are doing everything they can to safeguard public health and alleviate the situation as effectively as possible. While stay-at-home orders have been implemented for logical reasons such as decreasing COVID-19 deaths, there are two sides to the same coin: There’s a sharp increase in domestic violence accusations.

The earlier you secure our proven legal counsel, the sooner we can work to dismiss your charge.

With tensions running high during these difficult times, you could be vulnerable to a domestic violence accusation. Unemployment is skyrocketing, families are adjusting to their 24/7 home life and death tolls are increasing by the hour. It’s easy to let the harmful impacts of the coronavirus pandemic overwhelm your emotions and behaviors, but the last of your concerns should be facing a domestic violence charge.

Domestic violence can occur in physical, emotional, sexual and economic manners. It is defined as:

  • Attempting to cause or causing physical harm
  • Placing another in fear of imminent serious physical harm
  • Causing another to engage involuntarily in sexual relations by force, threat, or duress
