Do I Need a Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer?
If the police have probable cause to believe that domestic violence has occurred, they have an obligation to arrest the party they believe is responsible. They will conduct an arrest whether or not the other party wishes to press domestic violence charges. Once an arrest has been made, you will need to deal with the realities of living under a restraining order. Violation of the terms of your restraining order can result in additional, separate criminal charges. It can be very easy to go form defending yourself in one criminal case to having to defend yourself against multiple criminal charges if you do not abide the conditions of your restraining order.
