A: The State has to prove in a domestic violence battery:

To prove the crime of Battery, the State must prove the following element beyond a reasonable doubt:

Give 1 or 2 as applicable.

1. [(Defendant) intentionally touched or struck (victim) against [his] [her] will.]

2. [(Defendant) intentionally caused bodily harm to (victim).]

I would need more details to explain what defense are possible under your circumstances.
