Domestic Violence Cases Are Challenging
Domestic violence charges are challenging for three key reasons:
Domestic violence cases are aggressively prosecuted. In fact, there are prosecutors who specialize in these cases, who work hard to obtain convictions and protect the alleged victims. These charges are rarely dropped, even if the victim requests it.
Domestic violence law is complex. There are many crimes that can fall under the umbrella of domestic violence, from assault and battery to stalking and harassment. These cases often involve additional legal matters, including protective orders or restraining orders.
Domestic violence cases are emotional. By nature, these cases involve conflicts between spouses, significant others, family members and others with close personal ties. They may be related to breakups, divorces, child custody battles and other issues.
As challenging as domestic abuse cases are, it is critical to have an advocate who can stand up for you, guide you through the legal complexities, address any related matters and help you overcome this so you can move on with your life. Turn to Houlé Law in .
