Defending Against Domestic Violence Allegations
If you have been accused of domestic violence, you should seek legal representation as quickly as possible. At the Law Offices of Thomas J. Donnelly in Clearwater, Florida, our attorneys are experienced in both criminal defense and family law representation. We know how complicated and emotional these allegations are and the negative effects they can have.
The Immediate Consequences Of A Domestic Violence Injunction (DVI)
A domestic violence charge can have a huge impact on your quality of life and can affect your reputation and your relationship with your family. You have to begin considering the impact of a DVI as it takes almost immediate action. Some of the ways a DVI can affect your life include:
- Affect your right to bear arms
- Mean being stopped at the airport and prevented from traveling
- Having to move out of your home with your children
In addition to helping you understand how to stay in compliance of any DVI, we will begin building a strong defense against the criminal charges you are facing. Any violations of a DVI can be charged as new crimes. A conviction on domestic violence charges or charges of violating a DVI could have a lasting and substantially negative effect on your life. Let us help you through these tough times.
Is This Related To A Divorce?
If the charges occur during divorce proceedings, they could affect rulings concerning child custody and visitation. You might be prevented from having any contact with your children and other family members. Therefore, it is extremely important to seek legal representation that understands both family law and criminal defense. Domestic violence defense attorney Tom Donnelly has decades of experience and primarily focuses his practice in those two areas of law.
