What is Domestic Assault?

Domestic assault cases typically involve a person that lives under the same roof as you or that you are involved in a serious relationship with.

This may include:

  • A spouse
  • A child
  • A grandparent
  • A parent
  • A grandchild
  • A brother or sister
  • A roommate
  • An aunt or uncle
  • A step-parent
  • A person you share a child with
  • A step-child
  • A boyfriend or girlfriend
  • A fiance or fiancee

The courts take domestic abuse seriously. In addition to penalties and fines, you may be restricted from seeing your family members because of personal protection orders, or you may lose custody of your children. Domestic assault can involve a weapon but does not have to. If a victim claims that you swung at them, threatened them, or physically hurt them, these would all qualify as domestic assault cases.

Immediate Arrests for Domestic Assault

You may be arrested immediately if the alleged victim calls 911 or the local police station to report the incident. Oftentimes, there is an option for bail after these arrests. A judge or magistrate will review your case and determine whether or not you are eligible.

If you are given bail, chances are that the supposed victim of your assault will be placed under a personal protective order. This means you will not be permitted to contact that person until after your trial.
