Domestic Violence Defense

Domestic Violence Defense

Domestic Violence is a designation in criminal law given to certain crimes when there has been an intimate relationship between the parties involved. Typically individuals are charged with domestic violence when their partner claims there was physical violence, or when any other action is used by one person to control, punish, bully, threaten or seek revenge on the other.

Effects of a Domestic Violence Conviction – Why you need a Denver Domestic Violence Lawyer

The sentences in DV cases are generally harsher than in non-DV cases for the same crime. A DV conviction can result in sentences of jail time, probation, expensive fines, DV treatment classes, and a mandatory protection order keeping you away from your home and family.. The treatment program generally requires weekly classes and therapy sessions over the course of several months. Additionally, DV convictions may be used against you in other court proceedings such as future criminal and family law cases.

The consequences for a domestic violence are very severe, not only in the criminal court but beyond. Such convictions can also become threats of deportation of non-residents, and may create a hindrance in their present as well as future employment prospects. Also, a DV conviction can make it difficult to rent a living space or qualify for governmental assistance. Furthermore, a Colorado DV conviction can deny the defendant’s right to own or keep a firearm forever.

The prosecution and the police have limited ability to dismiss or ignore a claim of domestic violence. Because of this, DV cases are brought to trial more often than most other case types.
