Three Ways to Move on After a Domestic Violence Arrest

No matter who is at fault, who is arrested, and who is the victim, a domestic violence arrest can have a hugely negative effect on a family. However, there is good news: It does not have to define the rest of your life. No matter how serious the situation was, no matter what consequences you may have faced, there are ways to improve your future. Keep reading to learn more and remember that you can contact Law Office of Michael L. Fell at (949) 585-9055 for a free legal consultation.

  1. Work with the Right Attorney
  2. The most important step is to make sure that you have chosen the right attorney. The wrong attorney may have you plead guilty in exchange for several months in jail. The right attorney may be able to work out a creative sentencing option that can actually improve your life and help prevent further issues, such as anger management classes. Of course, if you are not guilty, then the right attorney will fight for your rights as well.

  3. Do Not Look at Yourself as the Victim
  4. No matter the situation, even if you were convicted of domestic violence that you did not commit, it is not worth looking at yourself as the victim. Yes, it is true that the consequences have the potential to affect the rest of your life. The truth is that life is simply not fair and you cannot change the past. If you have not yet been convicted, then you should fight for justice. If you have been convicted and already faced the consequences, it is time to let go of the victim mentality and move on with your life.

  5. Get the Help You Need
  6. There may be several ways to get help. Of course, if you have not yet been convicted, the first step to help is choosing the right attorney. If you have been convicted and dealt with the punishment, then there could be groups that could help you.

Once again, this may mean getting help with anger issues. It may mean joining a support group for people who have been convicted of a crime. As time goes on, it could mean applying for an expungement of your case. It could be as simple as getting one on one therapy.
