The impact of being charged with domestic violence is difficult to overstate. Depending on the circumstances, you may find yourself facing a temporary restraining order that leaves you:
- Unable to return home
- Unable to see your children
- Unable to contact your spouse/significant other
Your life can be turned upside down in an instant. Once the police have charged you, you need to begin taking action to protect yourself. It is no longer simply a matter of working things out with your spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend. The police and the prosecutor’s office will proceed with the case against you and you have to be prepared.
A conviction can include penalties such as jail and fines. A permanent restraining order can include the above listed conditions as well as preventing you from possessing a firearm, requiring that you attend anger management classes and almost any other conditions the judge deems appropriate.
