Domestic violence charges are serious criminal matters. Domestic violence cases effect families, children, friends and loved ones. In any domestic violence case, it is critical that you act quickly and immediately contact an experienced Van Nuys domestic violence defense lawyer.
Domestic violence cases may arise from small disturbances to serious domestic altercations. Depending on the severity of the allegations and the evidence presented — such as photographs, physical evidence, victim, defendant and witness statements — domestic violence crimes may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, and may be punished by incarceration in jail or prison.
In many instances, domestic violence victims want to “recant” their allegations or stop the prosecutor from going forward. This can be extremely challenging once a domestic violence case is in the prosecutor’s hands. It is also common for the police to exaggerate or misstate a domestic violence victim’s statements or charges.
