Domestic violence in Florida should not go unreported. If you are the victim of domestic violence, it is important first to get yourself safe. Immediately call 9-1-1, your local domestic violence hotline, or Florida Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-500-1119. Once you are safe, it is important to consult an experienced domestic violence attorney as soon as possible to protect yourself and your family. Conversely, if you are falsely accused of domestic violence, contact a domestic violence attorney right away. A false domestic violence allegation can have devastating consequences if not properly defended.
