Domestic Violence Lawyer in Solano County Standing up for Your Rights When No One Else Will

Why Hire a Domestic Violence Attorney?

Solano County Domestic Violence Lawyer

In the face of accusations of domestic violence or in the wake of a domestic violence arrest, you may wonder why you should hire a domestic violence attorney. What difference can an attorney make? Once law enforcement is called on the scene, the case is out of your hands. Even if an alleged victim does not want to press charges, it will be in the sole discretion of the prosecuting attorney to determine whether to bring a case against you. At this point, your only hope will be your criminal defense lawyer. California law involving domestic violence is highly complex and is a specialized field.

A skilled attorney will know what information or evidence to provide to the prosecution in order to negotiate to stop charges from being filed. Even if it is impossible to prevent charges from being formally filed, an attorney can provide you with the legal representation you need in all court proceedings. An additional factor to consider in a California domestic violence case is the fact that a victim is likely to seek a restraining order. If you are served a restraining order, depending upon the particular terms of the order you may be prohibited from coming into contact with the victim or even your children.

You may be forced to move out of your own home if you share it with the victim. However, you are entitled to a hearing after you are served a restraining order. During this hearing it will be determined by a judge whether the restraining order is necessary. A criminal defense attorney will play a major part in this hearing, and effective representation may mean that you can have the restraining order lifted.
