Fighting A Damaging Charge

Domestic violence is a serious crime that has painful repercussions for people who have suffered as a result of physical, emotional, financial or sexual abuse. Unfortunately, sometimes people make false accusations, and it's the false allegation that causes suffering, this time for the person who has been charged. This can happen in the context of child custody battles, or in other circumstances where one person wants to gain advantage over the other. If this has happened to you, you need an experienced domestic violence lawyer who can protect your rights and challenge the charges you face.

Domestic Violence Takes Many Forms

There isn't one standard form of domestic violence. If you are facing a charge of this form, it can be for any of the following or a combination of the following reasons:

  • Domestic assault
  • Domestic criminal trespass
  • Communicating threats
  • Stalking
  • Cyberstalking
  • Harassing phone calls
  • Violating restraining orders
  • Simple assault
  • Assault on a female
  • Battery of an unborn child

A conviction on a domestic violence charge in North Carolina can have serious consequences, which could include anything from anger management classes, community service, fines and incarceration. A conviction could also mean you become the subject of a restraining order, or are no longer able to see your children. Without a committed domestic violence attorney, these devastating consequences could become your new reality.
