Domestic Violence Charges
The charge of domestic violence can cover a wide variety of acts committed towards someone with that you have a familial relationship with, and the acts don’t all necessarily have to involve any physical injury. While violent charges like assault, battery and false imprisonment all fall under the category of domestic violence, so too can charges like harassment and even stalking.
It is a hazy legal area, and if you should find yourself stuck in it and slapped with a domestic violence charge, you are going to need a defense lawyer on your side right away.

Domestic Violence Penalties
A conviction for domestic violence charges could mean a wide variety of penalties, ranging from counseling, hefty fines, restitution being paid to the victim, and community service hours. Here in Alabama (the first state to outlaw domestic violence), a charge almost always includes jail time. If you, or someone in your family has been arrested on DV charges, contact us right away for help.
The consequences for a domestic violence conviction do not stop with just the sentence, though. There will be other problems resulting from the conviction, such as a blemish on your criminal record. If you have children, you may be in danger of losing custody of them. You might lose your right to own certain types of firearms. Finally, your job, your reputation within your community, and your good name are all put at risk. That is the lasting power of the stigma that is attached to a charge of domestic violence.
