Domestic Violence Attorney in Pennsylvania – Charges, Violations & Penalties

Domestic charges can be brought upon anyone who allegedly harms or threatens to harm a significant other, spouse or former spouse, children or parents or any other household member. The penalties of a domestic violence conviction in Pennsylvania are harsh, usually resulting in a misdemeanor or a felony, including jail time or incarceration.

At Shrager Defense Attorneys we know that many times allegations made by a spouse or significant other are false and may be done in the heat of the moment out of spite, anger, revenge or jealousy.

Sometimes the accused may be acting in self-defense. But even though the allegations may be false, the accuser has the upper-hand and your rights can be taken away with one phone call to the police.

The penalties for domestic violence charges can be devastating to families, even when there is reconciliation thereafter. Even if a victim requests that the charges be dropped, prosecutors may proceed with the case and try to have you convicted.

As experienced and compassionate Pittsburgh Criminal Lawyers, we understand that good people make bad mistakes and that often there is deep regret involved, as well as a willingness to make amends and start over.

That is why we fight aggressively for your charges to be dropped or your sentencing reduced. We will do everything possible to fight for your rights and win back your freedom.

CONSEQUENSES OF A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CHARGE IN PA

Directly following a domestic violence arrest, after you are released from a probable night in jail, you may not be able to return to your home or have any contact with the accuser.

Typically domestic violence convictions result in a misdemeanor, but depending on the crime and if any injuries were sustained you could be charged with a felony.

In addition to jail time and heavy fines, a conviction could also mean losing your custody rights to your children or losing your right to own a firearm. If you are a licensed professional, such as a doctor or accountant, you can also lose your right to practice your profession.

If your spouse or significant other takes out a Protection From Abuse (PFA) Order, sometimes known as a restraining order, you face criminal contempt charges. The penalties are severe if you violate the order and can include jail time, hefty fines, probation and community service. A PFA in Pennsylvania means no physical contact, but also means no phone calls, texting or emails. Read more about PFAs.
