It doesn't matter who started it. It doesn't matter who provoked whom. If the police are called to the scene of a domestic dispute, someone is going to jail.
If you have been arrested on a domestic violence charge, you know what it feels like to have the government involved in your personal life.
It doesn't matter if it was just a shouting match over who left the cap off the toothpaste or a true case of spousal abuse. Once the government gets involved in a domestic dispute, the consequences can be devastating.
If you are convicted on a domestic violence charge, there are mandatory minimum sentences, mandatory fines and a required batterer's intervention program.
Even after you serve your sentence, you will not be able to carry a firearm, you may not be treated equally in divorce or child custody proceedings, and you may find it difficult to get a job or a higher education.
Experienced Legal Representation
At Bauer Crider & Parry, our Clearwater criminal defense attorneys have successfully represented thousands of clients who were arrested for domestic violence, assault, battery, child abuse and violation of restraining orders. We have the experience to help you no matter how serious the charges against you.
The Truth About False Allegations
We know that many cases of domestic violence spring from false allegations. When a marriage is on the rocks, an angry spouse may make a false report of domestic violence in order to gain an upper hand in divorce proceedings. It is a tactic that is commonly used to get the other person out of the house.
We will defend you against any criminal domestic violence charge. If your spouse has taken out a temporary restraining order against you, our lawyers will also represent you at the hearing.
