Overview: Domestic Violence

Charged with domestic battery in Polk County?

Arguments and physical altercations between spouses and romantic partners can easily spiral out of control, given the emotionally charged nature of the relationship, and police officers in our area are quick to respond to any type of domestic violence allegation. If there is any evidence that a crime has been committed, they will typically arrest the apparent offender, who may or may not be the aggressor. They will also issue a temporary restraining order which prohibits the suspect from coming into contact with the alleged victim and which will likely fo rce the suspect out of the home, regardless of whose name is on the lease.

If you have recently lived through the embarrassing and stressful experience of a domestic violence arrest, it is highly advisable that you retain a lawyer from our firm who can help you seek to have the restraining order dropped and fight to clear your name of the charges. If convicted, you may be sent to jail or prison, forced to pay steep fines and placed on a strict probation which could include anger management classes and community service. Unfortunately, many domestic violence allegations are made by one of the parents in a divorce, in an attempt to gain sole custody of the children, as a family law judge will often deny custody or visitation rights on the grounds of a domestic violence arrest.
