As police are generally not present during domestic violence incidents, they frequently take the word of one person against another, along with any physical evidence of violence. Domestic violence does not only occur between husband and wife.

Under state law, a domestic relationship can include:

  • Spouse
  • Former spouse
  • Relation by blood or marriage
  • Girlfriend or boyfriend
  • Partner
  • Roommate
  • Person with whom you have children

There are a number of different criminal charges possible in domestic violence cases, both misdemeanor and felony charges. Penalties may increase or decrease, depending on the severity of the alleged crime and any prior criminal convictions.

Consequences of conviction can include:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Restitution
  • Probation
  • Court-ordered rehab or treatment programs
