When Domestic Violence Charges Rear Their Ugly Head

Domestic violence laws are designed to protect people from dangerous acts of assault between spouses, domestic partners and other people in close relationships. Law enforcement agencies keep vigil and respond to calls for help by vulnerable family members, girlfriends and boyfriends targeted by personal attacks often triggered by out-of-control anger.

When Heated Entanglements Turn To Accusations Of Threats Or Assault

More often than not, clients of Steele Law Offices accused of domestic violence consider themselves victims of circumstances. “He punched me and I instinctively hit back,” many say, or, “Our argument got out of hand; I grabbed her arm and left a mark but did not seriously hurt her.” Similar stories are very common among spouses and domestic partners arrested for their roles in altercations.

The details may differ, but however it happens, once someone calls the police, an arrest is likely. The partner complaining of violent actions may recant once police arrive, but police will very often take someone to jail nonetheless. A domestic violence arrest is a legal emergency that requires immediate attention. An experienced lawyer is vital if you hope to resolve the matter with the least damage to your freedom and your future.

Finding The Way Forward Is The Key To A New Lease On The Future

Consequences of a domestic violence arrest can be harsh. Jail time, loss of access to one’s home and children, a no-contact order, a criminal record and/or a worse outcome in a child custody matter are all real possibilities for someone charged or arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. Qualified legal counsel is critical — the sooner, the better.
