The holidays are fast approaching, and it’s supposed to be a time of joy and cheer. Unfortunately, it may also be a time when charges concerning domestic violence occur. But why? How is a familial time often tarnished by potential situations of domestic violence?
While many believe that there are numerous reports of domestic violence are in high numbers around the holidays—especially with the potential drinking—the numbers decrease. There are several reasons for this, but it’s very important for those involved in high-tension situations around the holidays to understand what can still happen.
Problems Come Back Later
There is a reduced number of reported domestic violence cases around the holiday because so many people are around families, trying to enjoy the time, and avoid potential problems. However, this doesn’t mean problems cannot arise later.
In some situations, while people avoid domestic violence reports during the holiday, people may exaggerate even the smallest argument after the holidays are over. This can make it so you face serious charges in the months following the holidays.
Be Vigilant of What You’re Doing During the Holidays
You want to be careful of what you’re doing during the holidays as there is often a lot of alcohol involved. This can also mean people making false accusations regarding domestic violence. However, if both people are heavily drinking and stories become skewed, it can be a case of “he said, she said.” There’s a chance that you can face serious charges because of a situation that wasn’t what the accuser thought it was.
