Taking a Closer Look at Domestic Assault & Family Violence
Domestic assault is when a person threatens a relative with violence or
makes them believe that danger is imminent. When assault takes place in
a home as family violence, the situation can become more complicated,
especially if there are children involved. What may have started as a
heated argument can be blown out of proportion and place a family in the
middle of a complex legal situation. This is especially true if the victim
has petitioned for a protective order against the alleged abuser. It is
not unusual for a spouse or partner to press charges for assault and family
violence out of vengeance or spite.
If you are facing criminal charges, we recommend you do the following:
- Take pictures of all forms of evidence or physical injuries.
- Keep copies of any medical records for care.
- Do not make statements to police without first discussing your case with
- Remain level-headed and refrain from making any rash decisions, such as
If a protective order has been issued against you, it is very important
that you comply with all the conditions stipulated in the order. Failure
to do so could cause you more trouble. Our firm can help you fully understand
the conditions of your order so that you can avoid further complications
in your case.
What Penalties Could I Be Facing?
Depending on the seriousness of your accusations, you could be facing serious
consequences. For example, in cases of domestic violence, you may be up
against up to a year in jail and as much as $4,000 in fines.
More than that, you could also face:
- Loss of child custody or visitation rights
- Mandatory counseling or anger management classes
- Probation with heavy restrictions
- Terminated parental or visitation rights
- Loss of your right to own a weapon
If you have been involved in an assault manner involving a family member,
your future is on the line. You cannot afford to go through this time
without qualified counsel.
