There Are Serious Consequences for Domestic Abuse Charges
When you are charged with spousal abuse or domestic violence, you will likely be subject to a restraining order or an order of protection. While the terms of such an order may vary from case to case, they generally include the following:
- Not being able to return to your residence if you share a place with the alleged victim
- No contact of any type with the alleged victim
- No contact with your children
- No possession of firearms (this is likely to be extended if you are ultimately convicted)
You do not have to be married in order to be charged with domestic assault. In fact, if the incident involves a student or a woman, you can be charged with domestic violence if the police merely believe that the two of you are in a relationship.
