Can I Sue My Ex For Making False Domestic Violence Allegations?

While it may seem like a satisfying thing to defeat your ex in court after you beat back the terrible experience of false domestic violence allegations, the truth is that you’re almost certainly better off letting it go.

You’re angry now, and probably will be for a long time, but judges don’t like to feel that they’re being used to perpetuate a vendetta between two people, and won’t necessarily applaud your efforts to exact your revenge through the courts.

Another thing you should consider is the cost of pursuing the matter when compared to the benefit you’ll get if you win.

Is your ex rich or powerful? Are you likely to come away with a large cash award, or the satisfaction of seeing tabloids and cable TV depict them as a monster for the world to see?

Probably not.

We understand where you’re coming from, but we also know that the best thing you can do is focus on beating the charges against you, and letting your future conduct prove to the people around you that you are innocent of the charges and were unfairly tarnished by a vindictive ex.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we can help you through this.
