Definition of Domestic Violence
Many innocent people are accused of domestic violence because of a misunderstanding or due to another’s personal vendetta. Family or household members—such as current or former spouses, related adults, unmarried parents of a child, those currently or previously living together, or those who were in an intimate sexual relationship within the past two years—can level domestic violence claims at another person.
The Oregon Family Abuse Protection Act considers the following to be domestic violence:
- Attempting to cause or intentionally causing bodily injury;
- Attempting to cause or intentionally causing fear of bodily injury; or
- Threatening or forcing involuntary sexual relations.
Our aggressive and highly skilled criminal law attorney understands the possible routes to a successful defense. We can examine all potential avenues of defense, including whether you acted in self-defense, could not be held accountable for your actions, or were falsely accused of domestic violence. Do not attempt to handle this on your own; put our firm on your side.
