Understanding Domestic Violence Charges
Very little evidence is needed to place someone under arrest for allegations of domestic violence. Typically once the police arrive on scene an arrest will be made.
A person can accuse you of:
You could be sitting in the back of a police vehicle in no time if faced with these accusations.
After you have been placed under arrest, you can be removed from the property, even if it is your own house, and ordered not to have any contact with the alleged victim. Restraining orders may be taken out against you and you may be prohibited from having contact with your children. If you are currently going through a civil matter such as a divorce or custody proceeding, an accusation of domestic violence can be detrimental to your case.
