Teller County Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer
Whether you are an active duty military professional who has been charged with harassment; or you are a husband and father who got arrested after a dispute with family, you may need serious legal help from a professional defense attorney.
The Definition of Domestic Violence
Family disputes can be not only emotionally painful but also quite complicated from a legal point of view. When incidents of domestic violence occur, it's common for false or misleading statements to be given to police and other officials- many times simply due to the emotional state of those involved. The context surrounding domestic violence can be crucial to the case. Often, what might seem at first to be a simple "cut and dry" case turns out to be incredibly complicated. To tease out a proper defense, you and your criminal defense attorney will need to examine precisely what happened and perhaps even take a deeper look at the sources of tension in the relationship.
In general, the following charges constitute domestic violence:
- Stalking an ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend
- Third degree assault
- Violating a restraining order
Consequences of Conviction
If you are convicted of domestic violence, you can lose custody of your children, face jail time and massive court penalties, and be subject to strict probation terms. You might also face long-term indirect consequences, such as a loss of professional reputation. In many cases, domestic violence issues involve deep subtleties and complicated personal relationships. That's why it's so important to talk to a defense attorney who understands the law both in theory and in practice.
