Do Not Let Domestic Violence Charges Control Your Future

Domestic violence charges are taken very seriously by the police and prosecutors. If you have been charged with domestic violence, you may be facing consequences before your case has been adjudicated.

You may find yourself subject to an emergency protective order or domestic violence order. These orders have an immediate impact and can last for two years with the possibility of being extended.

Emergency Protective Orders (EPOs)/Domestic Violence Orders (DVOs)

One of the key issues that people charged with domestic violence have to deal with is complying with the conditions of a domestic violence order. People often underestimate how seriously the courts take these orders. Any violation of part of the order can be charged as another crime. The conditions of a domestic violence order can include:

  • No contact by any means with the victim
  • No returning to a shared home
  • No alcohol
  • Granting temporary child custody
