Have you been charged with domestic violence? In Illinois, domestic violence can be charged many different ways. Allegations can range from harassment to threats, stalking, intimidation, physical abuse, and may include sexual crimes, such as incest or rape. Accusers in these cases are current or ex-spouses, past or present boyfriends or girlfriends, siblings, relatives, or anyone with whom you have shared a residence. Many times these accusers may seek an order of protection against you – barring you from your own home and property. The serious nature of these allegations cannot be understated. Even if your case is charged as a misdemeanor, a guilty finding may have devastating consequences for your reputation and your future.
Domestic Violence is Serious. You Need a Serious Lawyer
Domestic violence can cross all social and economic lines. Many times, the allegations may stem from a simple misunderstanding or poor communication. However, today's police officers follow an aggressive zero tolerance policy when it comes to domestic violence. These departments are inclined to arrest first and ask questions later. You may find yourself arrested before you can even begin to explain yourself to police. In these situations, we understand that you are the real victim in the case.
