Domestic Violence Allegation Defense

The stakes are high if you have been accused of domestic violence. You may face time in jail and even lose parenting time with your children. A domestic violence conviction will have a serious impact on child custody decisions with the court. It is important to receive assistance from an experienced legal professional to mitigate domestic violence charges.

Arrest and investigation of a violent family incident can be stressful and upsetting. You may feel pressure to admitting guilt, even if you have been wrongly accused. Without skilled legal representation, you may be convicted of a crime that you have not committed.

Penalties For A Domestic Violence Conviction

A domestic violence conviction can result in either a misdemeanor or a felony charge, costing thousands in fines and years in county jail. Your charges may even be compounded by other infractions such as disturbing the peace. If convicted, you will have an order of protection filed against you and will likely need to attend a domestic violence program. You may face probation, which often includes anger and substance abuse management program requirements. Between program costs and fines, you will face extensive penalties.
