Take Your Domestic Violence Charges Seriously
No matter how insignificant you may think a domestic dispute is, the consequences are severe if you have been arrested and charged with domestic violence or abuse. The police and the court will often issue emergency protective orders that can separate you from your family, remove you from your home, and prevent you from having unsupervised contact with your children. You may even go to jail.
Are you going through a divorce? A domestic violence conviction can negatively affect your chances at custody and visitation rights. A conviction can also have serious immigration or career implications.
It is a common misconception that, if the alleged victim in a domestic violence or spousal abuse case does not want to press charges, then the matter will be dismissed. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Once the police respond to a domestic violence call, it is no longer up to the parties whether or not there will be an arrest. The prosecutor determines whether to file charges and an alleged victim becomes a witness. But the attorneys at Ferrentino & Associates know how to bring to the prosecutor’s attention witnesses who disagree with the police and also want the charges dropped.
