Domestic violence arrests are common in Miami and around the state of Florida. Once law enforcement is called in, their obligation is to ensure the safety of those involved. Unfortunately, if you are charged with a domestic violence crime, it can lead to serious consequences. That is because any crime committed in the context of the family or domestic setting is treated very differently than if it had occurred elsewhere.
