Domestic Violence Allegations Can Lead To More Than Just Criminal Penalties

There are no more emotionally sensitive assault charges than those related to domestic violence. While anyone making allegations deserves to have his or her claims taken seriously, it is important to remember that those who are accused are innocent until proven guilty.

Beyond the potential for jail and fines, domestic violence allegations can lead to a restraining order being filed against you. This can keep you from entering your own home and can even prevent you from seeing your children. A conviction for domestic assault will also place you in a position where your right to possess a firearm is restricted.

An experienced attorney like Kevin Short can fully investigate the allegations against you and determine if they were made to gain leverage in a family law dispute, which is common. He will ensure that police, prosecutors and judges respect your legal rights and treat you fairly.
