Why Experience Matters to Your Domestic Violence Case
Experience matters in domestic violence cases because:
- Domestic violence allegations affect your living situation immediately after arrest
The conditions of release after an arrest for domestic violence may prohibit you from returning to your home or contacting the alleged victim. That means you may have to find temporary housing and/or coordinate with a police escort to get belongings you need for daily life and work. In the meantime, you may not be able to see your children, spouse or significant other.
- Domestic violence cases quickly get complicated because there may be simultaneous cases in the civil and criminal court systems
Domestic violence allegations are often accompanied by an Order of Protection, which an alleged victim may get through the civil court system or criminal court system. Allegations may also be made in the context of a divorce case, which is handled completely by the civil courts.
