Have You Been Accused Of Domestic Violence?

Have You Been Accused Of Domestic Violence?

Being charged with domestic violence or domestic assault can be the beginning of a nightmare that is hard to believe. These cases can begin with a false accusation or the police misunderstanding the situation they are dealing with.

No matter how these cases begin, the reality is that anyone charged with domestic assault can find him or herself facing a life that has been turned upside down. Most people are released through a conditional order of release. These orders generally serve many of the same purposes as orders of protection. Both of these types of orders place very serious restrictions on what a person can and cannot do. Violation of the terms of these orders can result in additional criminal charges.

Some of the common conditions that are part of an order of protection or conditional order of release include:

  • Inability to return to a domicile that is shared with the alleged victim
  • No contact with the victim (in person, telephone, mail, email, text message, third party)
  • Inability to possess or use firearms even for hunting
  • No drugs or alcohol use
  • No contact with children in some cases

Having to live with these conditions can be just the beginning. The conditions of an order of protection can last for several years. A conviction can result in your not being able to possess a firearm ever again. Further, without a strong defense to help you secure the best possible outcome, you may face jail and other serious consequences.
