Domestic Violence Charges Change Everything

The laws in Indiana seek to protect spouses, partners and children from violent crimes committed by family members. These cases are thoroughly investigated and can have severe consequences. The charges associated with domestic violence can range from a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a fine and a year of imprisonment, up to a Level 2 felony, punishable by up to 30 years of imprisonment.

Protective orders can also fall under domestic violence issues. In effect, these orders can include accusations of domestic or family violence, sex offenses and/or stalking. Violations of these orders can result in arrest.

People accused of domestic violence, sometimes referred to as domestic battery or family violence in Indiana, should seek skilled and knowledgeable legal representation. At The Region Lawyers, our attorneys have more than ten years of experience fighting these and other criminal charges for those in Merrillville and throughout the state of Indiana.

Domestic violence charges can alter a person’s reputation, change their family dynamics and threaten their future. Our attorneys understand the high stakes you are up against and can help combat these consequences.

These charges are often coupled with confusion and extenuating circumstances. An attorney can evaluate all conditions and factors involved in the accusations and charges. This might include the circumstances that led to heated exchanges (i.e., divorce or child custody battles) as well as the possibility of a false accusation. A domestic violence defense attorney can also work out possible solutions and find ways to lessen penalties against those accused or charged with domestic battery or family violence.
