Royal Oak Domestic Violence Attorney
A criminal action of violence, such as assault and battery, is a serious violation and can bring a difficult trial process and heavy consequences. When an act of violence is directed at someone close to the perpetrator, such as a household or family member, and happens repeatedly enough to form a pattern of negative behavior, Michigan State law considers it domestic violence. This is when a domestic violence attorney should be contacted.
People considered to be household or family members include:
Current Or Past Spouse
Children Or Stepchildren
Parents Or Stepparents
Current Or Past Roommates
Due to the personal nature of domestic violence and the proximity the accuser has to the accused, law enforcement agencies generally take the accusations more seriously. In some instances, if the police are sent to a location on a domestic disturbance call, they cannot leave unless they have made an arrest. If you were jailed and charged with domestic violence and you believe an exaggeration, misunderstanding, or false claims are to blame, it is time to defend your rights with a domestic violence lawyer from Rasor Law Firm.
You should react quickly when faced with such harsh charges! Contact us as soon as you can.
Consequences Of Domestic Violence Charges
Your accuser may file for a temporary or permanent restraining order against you at the beginning of your domestic violence case. This can limit where you go, when you go there, and who you can be around, all without any solid evidence against you or a conviction.
