Offences of domestic violence

Facing an allegation of domestic abuse is stressful and upsetting and can impact upon several aspects of your life, employment/business and your reputation.

If you are accused of an allegation of domestic abuse you should act quickly and seek advice from legal professionals.

Government pressure imposes an obligation on the police to investigate and prosecute offences of this nature. Often regardless of the wishes of the person who has made the complaint.  The Crown Prosecution Service can occasionally decide to charge an individual even when the complainant wishes to withdraw.

It is essential that if you find yourself in this situation and are accused of an offence of domestic abuse that you seek professional help either at the police station or in court.
