DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Charges of domestic violence, such as assault and battery and harassment carry serious consequences. Depending on the circumstances, one may also be charged with a criminal offense. In addition, a temporary restraining order (called a TRO) and a final restraining order (FRO) may be issued, forcing one to leave their residence and prohibiting any type of contact with the alleged victim and even one’s children.

Domestic violence refers to offenses committed against a spouse, former spouse, those with a dating relationship, a household member and even roommates.

The penalties one may face as a consequence of domestic violence charges include court-ordered anger management, child and spousal support, supervised visitation of children, monetary damages, reporting and registration requirements and counseling.
