Depending on the degree of the crime (nature of injury, whether a weapon was used), a domestic violence charge can range from a misdemeanor to a felony and has consequences that stem beyond just a criminal charge. In addition to the inability to own a firearm, those charged with domestic violence may be barred from their home and unable to see their children.
To make matters worse, it can be extremely easy to be charged with domestic violence. While it depends on the jurisdiction, in almost every case when the police are called on a domestic disturbance, someone is going to jail.
When someone is convicted of domestic violence, he or she also has to complete domestic violence counseling within a specific timeframe, a serious time commitment that many people have significant difficulty completing.
Because of the severity of these charges, it is critical to work with the most skilled attorney you can find to begin aggressively protecting your rights.
