Have You Been Charged With A Family Violence Offence?
Some issues in family violence cases are;
- Whose version of events is the truth?
These types of matters are usually private and it often comes down to oath on oath. There is also, commonly, a history of the person with the intervention order making contact with the accused when they should not be.
- How did it end like this?
These charges frequently arise out of relationships that have been going well to this point. It is important to explain what has gone wrong to the Judge so they can understand your point of view.
- How do we show the Court it is not going to happen again?
This is crucial in situations where there have been ongoing breaches of intervention orders. The Court needs to know its orders will be followed and what steps you have taken to change your behaviour.
