Domestic Charges

Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, Child Endangerment and Neglect

Domestic violence charges are often fueled by emotion and require an attorney who understands domestic violence cases. These charges are generally between two parties who either have a relationship or have recently severed a romantic relationship. Many ex-spouses threaten these charges after divorce proceedings begin, whether the charges are or aren’t true.

Georgia law takes domestic violence cases very seriously. Even before a person is found guilty of criminal assault charges, he or she is likely to face civil sanctions such as removal from the family home, as well as temporary restraining orders (TRO) that prevent the accused from having any contact with the alleged victim. If someone violates this restraining order, he or she may be jailed and charged with a separate crime.

Some common forms of punishment for domestic violence crimes include anger management programs, probation, felony charges, jail time, misdemeanor charges or counseling. Don’t be a victim of circumstances; fight for your rights with an experienced Georgia criminal defense attorney. Many domestic charges may be settled with a simple handshake between attorneys if the charges are without merit.
