FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Facing domestic violence charges can be overwhelming, but don’t lose hope. Here are the most common answers to some questions frequently asked by individuals facing domestic assault charges.

1
Can the charges be dropped if the accuser does not want to press charges?
That depends on the jurisdiction. In many jurisdictions, when the police file domestic assault charges, the decision to proceed with the case rests with the prosecutor, not the accuser. Even if the accuser wishes to withdraw the complaint, the prosecution may decide to proceed if there is sufficient evidence. That is because the state considers the implications of domestic violence on broader societal safety.
2
If I get convicted of domestic assault, what are the potential consequences?
+
The consequences of a domestic assault conviction can be severe and vary depending on the severity of the allegations, any prior convictions, and local laws. Typical penalties include jail time, probation, fines, mandatory anger management or domestic violence counselling, and possible restraining (no contact) orders. Convictions can also impact your future employment opportunities and reputation.
3
What defense strategies are available for my case?
+
Defence strategies depend on the case’s specifics. Sometimes, they involve outright Denial, demonstrating that the accusations are false or exaggerated. That usually consists in challenging the complainant’s credibility. You may have a claim of self-defense or that you acted in defense of others (for instance, your children). Each strategy requires a detailed analysis of the evidence and circumstances surrounding the case.
4
How will this charge affect my custody rights and divorce proceedings?
+
A conviction for domestic assault can significantly impact custody and access to your children, as courts consider the safety and well-being of children and spouses. It may result in limited visitation rights or supervised visitation and can influence the court’s decisions regarding custody and division of assets. Addressing these charges thoughtfully and strategically is crucial to protect your parental rights.
5
Should I speak to the police or anyone else about my case?
+
The general rule is that you should refrain from speaking to the police or anyone else about the details of your case with legal representation. What you say can be misinterpreted and used against you in court. It’s essential to consult with your lawyer, who can guide you on how to communicate effectively and legally in your best interest.
