Spousal Abuse Attorney in Jacksonville

Guidance from the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A.

If you have been charged with spousal abuse, the State Attorney's Office will prosecute the case even if the spouse who reported the alleged crime changes his or her mind. Spousal abuse is a form of domestic violence that can include physical, emotional and sexual abuse, as well as harassment, stalking and threats of violence. A person charged with any form of spousal abuse will need competent representation from a Jacksonville divorce lawyer.

If you are the victim of spousal abuse, a skilled attorney can discuss your legal options, including filing a petition for an injunction for protection to prevent your spouse from engaging in any further abusive behavior. Associates at the Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. can answer your questions regarding spousal abuse and help you understand the laws pertaining to your case. We will give you sound legal advice and can be counted on for strong representation in court.

Jacksonville Attorney for Domestic Violence Cases

Spousal abuse is a serious crime that can have many consequences.

Penalties for a conviction can include:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Mandatory counseling
  • Community service
  • Injunction for Protection

If the case involved sexual misconduct, sentencing can also include sex offender registration, which can affect future job opportunities and create many other difficulties in life. If an Injunction for protection is issued, it will prevent a person from having any further contact with their spouse and may even prohibit them from visiting their children.

If the children witnessed the violence, the abuser can also face additional charges of child endangerment. In abuse cases involving an ex-spouse, the court may also choose to terminate the abuser's custody and visitation rights.

Our firm is skilled in both criminal defense and personal injury. We are also family lawyers who understand the pressures and stress caused by a divorce.
