Domestic Assault Lawyer
Being charged with domestic assault often carries with it consequences beyond contesting a criminal case. For instance, if you reside in the home with the alleged victim, common conditions of release at arraignment include staying away from the residence that you shared with the alleged victim, as well as, not having contact with the alleged victim.
Staying away from the residence can obviously be problematic if you have no other place to live, and no other family or friends in the area. Additionally, if you are unable to contact the alleged victim, and you have children with that person, how can you have contact with the children if you are unable to contact the other parent?
Furthermore, if you are unable to contact the other person and a family member or friend contacts them to discuss the case, even without your permission, the government will likely attempt to attribute the contact to the person charged, and either revoke bail or raise bail.
These are all important details in any domestic assault case that often get overlooked. As a result, if you or someone you know is charged with domestic assault contact a domestic assault lawyer who will fight for you and who will make sure that the playing field is fair.
