If you have had a physical altercation with your significant other and the police are called under Florida law someone is going to jail. The police will make a determination as to who they believe the aggressor is and place someone in custody.
Domestic assault and battery is a real issue for law enforcement and the courts. When the Police are called they need to ensure no further harm is done. The courts want to get people the help they need, either through a domestic violence program or counseling. Of course every case is different, what occurs in court is based on prior history, severity of injury, etc.
In my practice it is often the victim of the domestic abuse that calls my office for assistance at getting charges dropped or bailing someone out of jail. Law enforcement does not like to drop charges in these circumstances. If you need helpgetting charges dropped or getting your loved one out of jail, called an experienced Miami criminal defense attorney.
