Domestic violence charges have considerable effects

When you and your loved one get into a disagreement, things can often get heated. In the heat of the moment, you might end up doing something that is uncharacteristic of you. If things turned physical, there is a chance that you will find yourself facing domestic violence charges. While that might seem like something that isn't really a big deal, these charges can have very serious consequences.

It is very important that you start going through the case against you right away. You might think that your loved one can simply have the charges dropped if you reconcile; however, that just isn't possible. Once the prosecutor picks up your case, the alleged victim isn't able to just have the charges dropped.

There are several points that might play a part in your case. One of these points is whether there was a weapon present or not. Another would be if you have prior convictions for domestic violence. Even in those cases, we can help you learn about the defense strategies that might work for your case.

The effects of a domestic violence charge are far reaching. Not only will you be faced with the penalties of the criminal justice system like incarceration, you will likely also face considerable social penalties. You might find that some people shun you. In some cases, you might face the loss of your right to carry a gun. You might also face difficulties with getting a job or finding a place to live all because of the domestic violence charges placed against you.
