What Constitutes Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence encompasses both the intent to cause harm and any actual harm which was inflicted. In this way, domestic violence charges are similar to assault and battery charges. Domestic violence charges include mental harm as well as physical harm. Forced sexual activity can also be considered domestic violence.

According to Michigan law, domestic violence occurs against members of the same household or family as the defendant.

For example, the following people could bring domestic violence charges:

  • A roommate
  • Former spouses
  • A spouse or child
  • A boyfriend or girlfriend
  • The other parent of your child
  • Relatives from a previous marriage
  • The dependent children of any of these people

Types of Domestic Violence Offenses

Domestic violence can take on many forms such as:

  • Stalking;
  • Battery;
  • Assault;
  • Child abuse; or
  • Sexual assault
At Rights First Law, we understand the many different intricacies involved in these types of cases. We will look past the drama and consider your case from all angles to find the best possible outcome. You can rely on our Birmingham domestic violence attorney to help you get the results you deserve.

What are the Penalties for Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence cases can be complex. If not cleared, you could be facing probation, anger management classes, and victim restitution, on top of significant jail time and fines. If you’ve previously been convicted of a domestic violence charge, a second offense could be charged as a felony.

You shouldn’t be presumed guilty before your case is heard. Rights First Law will make sure you get fair consideration.
