While many clients wish to put their charges behind them as quickly as possible, it is important to understand the long-standing ramifications of settling a case too soon. A domestic violence charge can affect your future in ways you may not immediately recognize and good counsel can assist you in understanding the potential impact a conviction can have on future employment and any professional connections.
Requirements for domestic violence probation vary between the misdemeanor and felony level, but the requirements are frequently more strict than traditional supervision terms. Terms for completion may include ongoing counseling, no contact orders with victims, increased reporting and significant fines. Requirements, such as these, may impact your current job, finances and relationships. Though reconciliation between opposing parties is common, it important to seek legal advice to guide any victim contact during the pre-hearing phase to determine whether it could adversely affect your outcome in court.
