Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

What Usually Happens in a Domestic Violence Case?

When violence occurs between intimate partners, police officers responding at the scene may make an arrest. Read on to find out what usually happens in a domestic violence case. 

Typical Domestic Violence Case Proceedings

Domestic violence involves allegations of violence between family members, married couples, or domestic partners. In order to prove domestic violence, a prosecutor must demonstrate that the suspect knowingly or intentionally threatened to harm, harmed, or engaged in objectionable physical contact against another person. 

Domestic violence proceedings tend to be emotionally charged, given that they are usually filed against people who know each other well. Factors that could influence the outcome include the nature of the alleged violence, the relationship between the individuals, and any record of past abuse or convictions. 

When someone reports domestic violence, the aftermath can determine what usually happens in these types of cases. An officer arriving on the scene may make an arrest, but arrests may also be made after the event in question. Police will lead an investigation, and all witnesses will be questioned. 

Many different forms of violence could be treated as domestic violence, and punishments can range from a night in jail to up to years in prison. False allegations can also be treated as misdemeanors. In the end, the outcome of the case—and its timeline— will be determined by the prosecution’s investigation into the facts.
