Q: Am I required to take the batterers’ intervention program?
A: Domestic violence law under Florida Statute 741.281 requires the court to place a person on a minimum of 12 months of probation and while on this probation the court must order the defendant to complete the batterers’ intervention program as a condition of this probation.
The court can waive the batterers’ intervention program as a condition of probation if the court determines that the program is inappropriate and states on the record why the program is inappropriate.
