The Consequences of False Accusations
Due to the emphasis on protecting victims, a mere misunderstanding or miscommunication can quickly escalate into criminal charges without proper investigation. Being accused of domestic violence can lead to immediate arrest, forced removal from the home, and restricted access to children until the accusations are resolved. Even a misdemeanor conviction can result in jail time, loss of gun ownership rights, and various other long-term consequences.
Understanding Domestic Violence
Domestic violence is legally defined as abusive behavior directed towards an intimate partner. While many associate "intimate partner" with a spouse or romantic partner, it encompasses a broader scope. This includes current or former spouses, dating partners, individuals with whom one shares a child, roommates or former roommates, parents, grandparents, siblings, step-siblings, half-siblings, children, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews. If you have been arrested for abuse involving any of these individuals, you may face domestic violence charges.
Types of Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic violence charges can vary, encompassing offenses such as child neglect, criminal threats, restraining order violations, and battery on a spouse, among others.
