The New DV Court in Wayne County is likely to cause the harassment of innocent people.

Domestic violence is a tremendous problem in Michigan. This being said, false and exaggerated allegations of domestic abuse are prevalent and it takes a strong, skilled, and reputable defense lawyer to win.

Wayne County Domestic Violence Defense

The Third Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan, has received a federal grant to start a new domestic violence prevention court. The mission of the new Solution-Oriented Domestic Violence Prevention Court (SODVPC) is to fill perceived gaps in the personal protection order (PPO) system by using a solution-oriented approach in family law cases. If you face domestic violence allegations in Wayne County, you will want the best lawyer to protect and defend you.

A report by the Michigan State Police indicates that 44% of domestic violence allegations originate in the tri-county area (Oakland County, Wayne County, and Macomb County). According to program organizers, the new Domestic Violence (DV) court will provide and promote safety and enhance prevention. The DV Court will work with community domestic violence organizations to help facilitate these goals.

New Wayne County Domestic Violence Court likely to Cause Harassment

As Michigan domestic violence attorneys, we can see a significant system flaw: the Wayne County Domestic Violence Court has no procedure to examine the veracity of domestic violence allegations. Although the Michigan State Police may claim that domestic violence is at epidemic proportions in Michigan, defense lawyers are well aware that false domestic violence and domestic abuse allegations are widespread and on the rise. Unfortunately, these allegations are regularly used to gain financial, custody, and power advantages over unsuspecting and undeserving spouses and domestic partners. Unfortunately, there is often a preemption of guilt in domestic violence cases rather than a presumption of innocence. It sounds as if the new DV Court will be treating all allegations, regardless of truth and veracity, as proven allegations. This presumption of guilt will undoubtedly result in the dehumanization and demeaning treatment of innocent victims of false allegations.
