Domestic Violence Injunctions

A wide range of situations can result in a domestic violence charge. Maybe your situation involved a verbal threat against a girlfriend. Maybe an argument with a spouse got out of control and authorities were called.

The Consequences Of A Domestic Violence Conviction

Either way, a domestic violence arrest carries strict consequences. A misdemeanor conviction can result in hefty fines, up to one year in jail, probation and community service.

Felony convictions are much more severe. You could face prison time in excess of one year, probation, parole and a restriction of certain everyday rights.

In many situations, a restraining order may prohibit you from having any contact with the alleged victim or your children.

Obtaining the help of a criminal defense attorney who knows the laws and procedures and can help mitigate what you will face is crucial.
