My Ex-wife Wrongfully Accused Me Of Abuse; Do I Have Any Hope In Court?
“You have to feel confident.
If you don’t, then you’re going to be hesitant and defensive,
and there’ll be a lot of things working against you.”
Help Your Defense – Don’t Get Defensive
“Go ahead. Make my day.” The same lips that uttered those words on the big screen gives sage advise of an entirely different sort – when you get defensive, “there will be a lot of things working against you.” This is true of those who have been wrongfully accused of abuse. If you are going to have any hope in court, contact your attorney immediately and keep Clint Eastwood’s advice in mind when dealing with the accusations.
When police show up to your home to follow up on reports of domestic abuse, the worst thing you can do is to go on the defensive. Anything and everything you say can be misconstrued and used against you in court. It is understandable that you are angry and confused and trying to deal with a number of emotions, but make up your mind from a position of strength that should the police pay you a visit you are going to keep calm.
A Strong Counterattack Is Key
