Domestic Violence Cases Can Creep Into Family Law Cases

Being charged with domestic violence is a serious accusation. Not only will you possibly have to face the criminal court system, but this charge can also filter over into other areas of your life. There are some instances in which the domestic violence issues might creep into a family law case. This is sometimes the case when there are accusations that your children witnessed the events.

We know that this is a frightening time for you. It is imperative that you take the time to review your options for handling the case. One thing that you must remember is that you can’t contact anyone if there is a protective order in place between you and them. If this is your spouse, you might be facing a very difficult road. In some instances, the court might include your children in the order, which means that you won’t have time alone with them. It is possible that you might have supervised visits.

As you are thinking of how to handle the case, you should review all the options that you have available. This might mean that you consider a plea deal if you admit that a situation got out of control. Other options might also be possible, so you should start reviewing these as early in your case as possible.

Another consideration for you is how a conviction on this type of charge might affect you. Since this charge does involve violence, a conviction can negatively affect your ability to find jobs in certain sectors. Additionally, there is a chance that your social life will suffer because of this matter. Thinking carefully about all of these aspects might help you decide how you are going to plan your defense.
