Defense And Guidance In Domestic Violence Matters
Being accused of domestic violence can turn a life upside down. Often, the person accused does not have a previous criminal record and can scarcely believe that private family matters have led to misdemeanor or even felony charges. Meanwhile, the accused person may face practical difficulties such as losing access to one’s home and losing contact with one’s children. A vigorous defense is needed on many fronts to allow the accused to move forward toward resolution, ideally without a criminal record.
Being threatened with domestic violence, on the other hand, is frightening. Experiencing assault by a spouse, domestic partner or family member may or may not result in physical harm, but it will nearly always result in emotional wounds and fear. The escalated emotions and possible restraining orders or orders of protection can disrupt one’s sense of security and get in the way of resolving a divorce or child custody dispute amicably.
