On Behalf of | Jan 15, 2016 | Domestic Violence

Domestic violence cases pit you against your loved one. That is a horrible feeling for anyone to have to go through. On top of the issues with your loved one, you are also facing the possibility of penalties in the criminal justice system. We know that when you think about the state of your personal life and the possible criminal case, you might begin to worry. While we can’t take that worry from you, we can help you to work through the legal aspects of your issues.

When you are being accused of domestic violence, you might be facing two different types of cases. You might be facing a criminal case that can lead to fines, probation, incarceration and other penalties. You might also be facing a civil case that can lead to you having a restraining order placed against you.

If you have an order of protection placed against you, you won’t be able to go back home. If you have children, you will probably have to stay away from them. All of this can be a hard pill to swallow while you are facing such a tumultuous time in your life.

We can help you as you go through both the civil and criminal cases that you might be facing. This means that you won’t have to deal with two sets of lawyers for your cases. Instead, we can go over both cases with you to help you decide how you want to answer the accusations against you. It is critical that you take action right away when you know about the accusations because some aspects of your case can move through the court system quickly.
