Types of Domestic Violence in Arizona

If a person feels their safety is in jeopardy to a person residing in their same household, they can accuse that other person of domestic violence. While it is possible to prove your innocence in these matters, it is difficult. You should get help from an experienced Yuma criminal defense lawyer who has years of practice defending against these kinds of allegations.

Arizona Domestic Violence Penalties

If you were charged with domestic violence, your rights are on the line. Whether or not the incident happened, the consequences of a mere accusation can cause a person to lose the privilege of contact with their family immediately. Following a charge of domestic violence, chances are good that you will be barred from seeing your family due to an Emergency Order of Protection.

A charge of domestic violence, even without a conviction, can lead to:

  • Protective orders that prevent you from being able to see your children
  • Lawsuits that can cost you thousands of dollars and affect your criminal history
  • Changes to child custody and child support arrangements that will continue to affect you years later

Domestic violence is unique in that those who report the incident to police cannot drop the charges. Unfortunately, many people call the police in an effort to threaten the other person. There will be an arrest, and there will likely be jail time right away. The only person able to drop charges against someone accused of domestic violence will be the district attorney.
