Sadly, many of these circumstances could have been prevented, however the legal system enforces mandatory jail time for any domestic call. When you have been charged with a domestic violence offense, contacting a knowledgeable lawyer is essential to safeguarding your rights, especially when it comes to your visitation rights for your children. Not only may a defendant face harsh criminal penalties upon a conviction, but he or she may also face loss of custody and the burden of living with a criminal conviction. Domestic violence convictions in particular may affect one's right to own a firearm and may also interfere with employment and educational opportunities.

When it comes to domestic violence cases, there are numerous different types of abuse. The U.S. Department of Justice categorizes the abuse into five major types. The first type, physical abuse, is the most well-known. This could include hitting, pushing, punching, slapping, shoving, or kicking. It extends past physical acts towards someone to include denying medical treatment and forcing the victim to consume drugs or alcohol. The second type of abuse is emotional abuse. This includes verbal abuse like name calling and criticism as well as attempts to diminish the individual's self-worth. Sexual abuse is another form of domestic violence. This could be towards one's children or spouse/partner. When someone withholds access to money or denies them the rights to work, this could be a form of economic abuse. Lastly is psychological abuse. This uses fear, intimidation, and threats to control the victim.
Why is it important to have an experienced lawyer?
The consequences of a domestic violence conviction can be disastrous to your future in many different ways. Besides being jailed, you face stiff fines and mandatory batterer's treatment counseling program or anger management classes. You could lose access to your home if you have a protective order or restraining order served against you and be unable to see your children. If convicted of one of the more serious domestic violence charges, you could receive years in prison and be required to register as a sexual offender on state and national sex offender registries. With this on your record, it will be extremely difficult to find gainful employment or even housing that does not carry many restrictions.
While there are many instances of dangerous, detrimental domestic violence cases, there are also sadly those who use these types of charges unlawfully. Whether they accuse a family member of domestic violence due to jealousy, revenge or to gain the upper hand in a legal case involving family law, they will not take the crime seriously. Instead, charges of domestic violence become a weapon to use against the innocent. If you have been accused of domestic violence, you should not hesitate to secure the legal assistance and defense that you require from an experienced domestic violence defense lawyer.

You will be facing a ruthless, relentless prosecution, and you simply cannot leave your future up to chance in such harrowing circumstances.
