Understanding Domestic Violence Charges And Potential Consequences If Convicted
Domestic violence is aggressive behavior that involves abuse of a spouse, partner or someone else at home. There are many types of domestic violence, including physical, sexual, psychological, emotional and financial.
A conviction may lead to fines, anger management classes and counseling as well as a jail or prison sentence. But an arrest and conviction can have a much broader effect on your life, too. Your reputation will suffer and the outside world may brand you as a spouse beater. And if you have children, a conviction could affect custody arrangements and how and whether you can visit them.
What Is A Restraining Order?
A restraining order is a court order designed to protect a victim of domestic violence. The victim obtains a restraining order against the person accused of abusing him or her. It prevents the alleged abuser from contacting the victim.
