Domestic Violence is an assault that is alleged to have occurred between persons who have a domestic relationship. This charge is pursued vigorously by prosecutors, often despite the wishes of a complaining witness. Domestic Violence can range from misdemeanor to felony charges, each carrying not only their substantive penalties, but also possible collateral consequences affecting rights to own or possess firearms and the ability of non-citizens to remain in the United States.
Those charged with Domestic Violence quickly realize how differently these cases are treated by the criminal justice system. Mandatory arrests, swift and severe bond conditions, such as preventing a return to your home or having contact with your significant other or children, are common.
