Domestic violence can occur between spouses, domestic partners, former partners or spouses, parents and children, individuals involved in a dating relationship, or against the elderly. If you are investigated, arrested for or charged with a domestic violence crime, you are facing prison time as well as the inability to legally obtain or own firearms in the future. Domestic violence may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, most frequently depending upon the injuries. Attorney Carpenter can review your case to determine how best to pursue a resolution to the situation.
In some cases, domestic violence accusations may have been used as a tactic to achieve a goal in a family law case, such as obtaining sole custody.
