There are times when frivolous and false allegations are made in domestic violence complaints. If you are innocent of a domestic violence allegation made against you, take steps immediately to write a narrative of what happened. Also write down names and phone numbers of witnesses, if any. If you are innocent, you should never attempt to represent yourself in a domestic violence hearing in court. In North Carolina, it is illegal to knowingly make a false statement in procurement of a domestic violence order, so if you are unjustly accused, contact an attorney right away. It is important to seek out an attorney experienced in defending clients against false domestic violence charges.
