While some arrests for domestic violence are founded on valid complaints, there are many cases on record in which the suspect is actually the victim of some type of domestic abuse, or has been falsely accused. For example, one spouse may level false allegations against the other with the goal of gaining the upper hand in a divorce where children are involved. Whatever the circumstances, it is vital that you take action to avoid possible consequences that include time in jail or prison, fines, and a criminal record that could follow you for years.

Violating Protection Orders in Modesto, CA

If your arrest resulted in a domestic violence restraining order, you must at all costs avoid violating that order. This is true even if the other party has invited you to meet or if you are intending to reconcile. Remember: you are being prosecuted by the state of California, and it is not up to your spouse or partner to decide whether to enforce the order.

Contact us today! Let us act as your legal representation in every aspect of the case so that we can defend your personal interests and fight to clear your name of the charges.
