Fresno Domestic Violence Lawyer
Have You Been Arrested for a Violent Crime?
There are a variety of different situations which can lead to an arrest for domestic violence. In many cases, an argument between two parties can quickly escalate as a result of a bystander's involvement or the police being called. Other cases of domestic violence involve one or both parties being intoxicated which can quickly lead to a dangerous situation.
Understanding Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic violence is a term which covers a variety of different offenses committed against a person with whom you have a domestic connection. Although this often involves spouses and romantic partners, it extends to roommates and family members. If a person with whom you have a close relationship feels that you have put their safety or life in danger, you may find yourself facing domestic violence charges.
The following crimes are considered acts of domestic violence:
- Emotional abuse
- Mental abuse
- Physical assault
- Sexual assault
Accused of Violating a Restraining Order?
A restraining order or protective order is a document which is put in place by a judge to protect a victim of domestic violence and their children. This order typically restricts you from having any contact with the victim, including physical contact, visits to their home, and any other form of communication. If you have been convicted of domestic violence and a restraining order was taken out against you, it is important that you do not violate the terms of this order.
