What Is Considered Domestic Violence?

In criminal cases, "domestic violence" is defined as battery, assault, stalking, trespass, property damage, threatening, or other physical or emotional abuse offenses against a current or former spouse, a family member, or a person who who lives in your household or did in the past.

Most domestic violence accusations are related to past or present spouses, domestic partners or romantic partners, children and the elderly. It is possible to be charged with domestic violence regardless of your relationship with your accuser.

What Happens If I Am Convicted?

You could face several consequences depending on the severity of your charge. A Fulton County criminal defense attorney like Thomas Salata can help you weigh your options and work toward moving past your domestic violence charge and on with your life.
