If you have been charged with domestic violence, you are facing a very serious situation. Domestic violence charges are considered a zero-tolerance charge. Unless you agree to a plea deal, these cases go to trial.
The consequences of a conviction for domestic violence can affect your life for years to come. You owe it to yourself to make sure you have a defense that can help you secure the best possible outcome to your case.
Dealing With The Immediate Impact Of Domestic Violence Charges
Unlike most criminal charges, you can begin to face some very real consequences almost immediately if you have been charged with domestic violence. You may be subject to a restraining order. The conditions of that order can include:
- No contact with your accuser (By phone, email, mail, through a third party or by any other means)
- No returning home
- Loss of child custody
- No alcohol/drugs
- Surrender of firearms
What many people do not realize is how important it is that they follow the conditions of their restraining order. Violating those conditions is a crime itself. Many people find themselves facing multiple charges due to violating those conditions.
We can help you navigate the terms of your restraining order while we build a strong defense for you.
