Serious Defense Against Domestic Assault Charges In The Hastings Area

When a domestic dispute involves the police, the matter can quickly become something that can affect the rest of your life. If the police have come, and they feel there is sufficient evidence to charge you with domestic assault, you will need to begin working to build a strong defense. Even if your spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend does not want to press charges, it will not matter. If the police believe domestic abuse has occurred, you will be charged.

We Can Help You Pursue Preferable Terms For Your Order For Protection

By securing legal representation right away, you can help shape the conditions of the order for protection/domestic abuse no-contact order that you will have to live under. These orders can have very strict terms. Failing to follow them is a new crime in itself. By working to secure better conditions, you can put yourself in the best position to avoid violating the order.

Even with a more favorable order for protection, a conviction can have permanent impacts. For example, a domestic assault conviction will permanently prohibit you from owning firearms. This is a huge issue for those who hunt or otherwise enjoy firearms. More importantly though, a prohibition on owning a firearm will prevent you from ever being able to secure work at a job that requires carrying a firearm, such as being a police officer.
