Domestic violence allegations can affect your life in more ways than you think. If you are involved in a disagreement with someone in your household, there are two sides to every story. Speak with a lawyer to detail your side of the story and have an advocate throughout the process.
Domestic Violence Charges and the Consequences
Accusations of domestic violence have severe consequences. When you work with a lawyer, you can minimize the charges and bring justice to the situation. Here are some areas of your life that can suffer from a domestic violence charge that is undisputed:
· Loss of Career Opportunities: The accusations alone of domestic violence can cost you your current job and any future opportunities. When you sign up with a lawyer, you can show your boss that you are working with a lawyer to fight for your innocence.
· Change in Child Custody Agreement: If you are divorced with children, your child custody agreement could be on the line. If you are found guilty of domestic abuse allegations, you could lose the chance to see your children regularly. Tell the truth and work through the proceedings in a civil manner with a trusted lawyer by your side.
· Grounds for Divorce: Domestic violence allegations in a partnership could lead to divorce. If you have violent charges under your belt going into the divorce, you will be less likely to get financial or custodial rulings in your favor. Work with a lawyer to clear your name or find a safe and fair way to move forward for all parties involved.
Learn from an experienced lawyer to understand your domestic violence charges. Work together to come to a compromise in the case and move forward with a new plan of action that could include anger management or mandatory distance from a domestic partner. By hiring a lawyer, you can reduce the charges against you and move on from an unpleasant experience.
