The days of “live and let live” are over; when it comes to the arena of domestic disputes. These days, law enforcement’s answer to domestic violence allegations is to “arrest everyone and let the courts sort it out later”.
To be sure, there exists a “cycle of violence”. It is also just as true that many litigants, especially in dissolution of marriage proceedings, abuse the criminal and civil justice systems in order to obtain unfair advantage against their spouses. Much of the time, Prosecutors and Judges are able to discern those persons who attempt to abuse the justice system to gain their own personal advantage, and dismiss these cases accordingly.
But Judges and Prosecutors are only human. They make mistakes. And it is then that innocent, wrongfully accused citizens lose their homes, their money, access to their children, and even their liberty. (For more detailed information concerning Florida Law in these areas, feel free to peruse Chs. 741 & 784, Fla. Stats. (2007).
