Our experience qualifies us to protect domestic violence victims or anyone who is threatened by assault. An assault charge can be filed as a misdemeanor or a felony if a weapon, serious bodily injury, or strangulation is involved. This is why we deal with these cases very seriously. These cases vary in situations depending on if there are witnesses, if the police is a witness or if there is bodily harm to another person. However, a domestic violence charge doesn’t always involve physical abuse. Depending on the state you live in, a verbal threat that is invoking fear in the victim can also be considered abuse. There are three levels of assault, simple assault, assault with injury, and aggravated assault. But what is a Domestic Violence assault and what are the laws and penalties involved?
An assault of this level can become a felony depending on the severity and timelines of the assault as well as evidence and witnesses. In addition to criminal penalties, incidents of domestic violence can be used against the perpetrator as grounds for court-issued protective orders that affect contact with the victim and child custody. As mentioned before the law varies amongst states, therefore some states have created separate laws that apply to domestic violence, while other states treat domestic violence as an aggravating factor that can increase penalties for defendants such as adding extra charges.
How can Abogado Guerrero provide a protection order against domestic violence?
There are different types of protective orders depending on the situation and the severity of the case. If you live in fear of being a victim of domestic violence you may ask a judge to provide a protective order for you. After gaining the protection order you might be asked to accommodate in a new location for your own protection. There are also temporary protective orders if your situation is an emergency the judge doesn’t need to notify the person whose order is against.

Our lawyers can get you a restraining order, an anti-harassment protection order, or an extreme risk protection order.
