Complicating the situation are “no drop” policies — even if your spouse or partner wants to drop the charges, the prosecution will virtually never do so. The person accused will still be arrested, charged, and possibly convicted.

Consequences of a Domestic Violence Conviction
First, be very careful before considering a guilty plea, which could be used against you in a civil action.
Not only can domestic violence conviction result in jail time, it can also result in:
Firearms prohibition – You could lose the right to use a gun, even for hunting.
No contact order – You could lose the right to have contact with the alleged victim, even essential contact such as meeting shared financial obligations or arranging visitation with your children.
Limited custody rights to your children.
If your best strategy is a plea agreement, we can get you into a treatment or counseling program that may reduce your charges or sentence.
