Why should you involve an attorney to handle your domestic violence charges? Whether formal charges have been filed against you at this point, you will be in danger of harsh criminal penalties and other serious consequences if you are eventually found guilty of domestic violence. Nevada, like all states, has adopted aggressive, unrelenting tactics in investigating and prosecuting those accused of domestic abuse of any kind. A skilled criminal defense attorney may be your only line of defense against an altogether bleak future.
If you are accused of domestic violence, there are several serious situations you will have to deal with. The alleged victim may seek a temporary protective order, without your knowledge and without even giving you an opportunity to defend yourself until the order has already been issued. This may temporarily prohibit you from coming into contact with or even within a certain distance of the alleged victim and even any children you share with the victim. You may be in danger of being arrested and may face imprisonment, fines, community service, counseling and probation if you are convicted.
