5 Things To Not Do When Charged With Domestic Violence In Arizona

Getting charged with Domestic Violence in Arizona can be a very overwhelming experience. You could be facing significant penalties and potential jail time. If you have been charged with Domestic Violence, this does not mean your fight is over. Below are some ways your attorney can help you reduce or get your potential Domestic Violence charge dismissed. 


  1. Don't give extra information to the police. If you are charged a DV offense the police will likely want to interview you. The information you give will only hurt you. Request a defense lawyer and do not volunteer information.


  1. Don't violate your release conditions. If you are charged with a DV offense and the court sets release conditions do not violate those release conditions. Even if your partner says they want to have contact with you, do not have contact if that is what your release conditions call for. If you violate your release conditions you can face new charges.


  1. Don't go to court by yourself. If you do you may talk to a prosecutor who will offer you a plea agreement. Don't sign anything without talking to an experienced domestic violence lawyer. The plea agreement may sound good but there could be details that affect you down the road.


  1. Don't hire any random lawyer just because they say they have experience with domestic violence cases. Hire a lawyer that is familiar with the court where you are facing the charges. Courts and prosecutor offices vary greatly from court to court. A lawyer who doesn't have experience in the court where you are charged may not be able to get the best outcome possible for you.
  1. Don't give up hope. If you are charged with a domestic violence offense, the feeling can be overwhelming. You will have a lot of questions about being able to see your loved one, jail, probation, gun rights and so on. With the help of a good domestic violence lawyer you will get through it.
