Your Freedom and Family Are on the Line
Domestic violence or spousal abuse involves a household member inflicting
physical or emotional damage on another member of the same household.
This often occurs between spouses or domestic partners, but it can be
between parents, children, siblings, and boyfriends and girlfriends.
Many individuals do not retain counsel after being arrested for domestic
violence because they are embarrassed or do not believe the charge will
have consequences. However, being charged with domestic violence can be
very serious, even if the accuser retracts his or her accusation.
In most domestic violence cases, an order of protection, also known as
a restraining order, is issued. If an order of protection is issued against
you, you need a lawyer to protect your rights. A restraining order may include:
- A ban on any contact with the accuser
- An order that you move out of your shared home
- An order that you maintain a distance of at least 100 yards from the accuser
and his or her home and workplace
- An order of protection for children and others living in the home
- An order that you attend counseling
- A ban on buying a gun
Violating an order of protection may result in an immediate arrest. You
may also face fines, jail time and charges of misdemeanor or felony assault.
