What Is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence refers to crimes committed against a family member, spouse, or partner with whom you share a residence. There are many different actions which fall under the category of domestic violence, from physical violence to harassment. If you are convicted of domestic violence, you could be facing very serious criminal consequences. Domestic violence convictions often carry penalties such as time in jail, community service, probation, and an anger management or batterers' intervention program.

Acts of domestic violence can include:

  • Physical abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Assault with a weapon
  • Child endangerment
  • Child abuse
  • Emotional/mental abuse

Call Our Fairfax Criminal Defense Lawyer for a Free Consultation

Once an alleged victim files a complaint or an arrest is made, they may file a petition requesting a protective order or restraining order. When a restraining order has been filed against you, you will not be able to contact or come into close proximity with the alleged victim. This includes written and electronic communication and will prevent you from visiting their residence, even if it was a shared residence. You will not be able to visit their place of employment, school, or any other place where they have personal obligations.
