In Massachusetts, all domestic violence cases are investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Once domestic violence is reported to law enforcement authorities, the accused is often immediately arrested and removed from their home. Authorities are serious about every domestic violence call. This is because they are attempting to prevent victims from being intimidated by offenders. Because of this concern, even if the report of domestic violence is false, you will likely be prosecuted.
Massachusetts Residents often file 209A restraining orders which serve to prevent contact with someone. AFTER A 209A IS FILED, NEITHER PARTY MAY CONTACT THE OTHER PARTY.
Violations are commonly proven in Mass Courts based solely on the testimony or even perjury of a witness.
