Accused of Criminal ViolenceIf you are facing domestic violence charges, it is important to get the help of a defense attorney to help you protect your rights and fight the allegations. Attorney Dan Baca has the experience and the passion for justice you need on your side.

Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence is defined as any threat or physical or emotional harm committed against  a “household member,” which includes a partner or spouse, children and others who may live with you or with whom you have a personal relationship. (Cohabitation is not necessary to be deemed a “household member.”)

Typically, domestic violence charges include assault and/or battery against another adult. However, domestic violence can be considered child abuse when minors are involved or present during a domestic violence incident.

Domestic Violence Charges—Lifetime Consequences

Domestic violence convictions carry heavy consequences—some that may last a lifetime. In addition to prison time and fines, those convicted of domestic violence also face:

  • Mandatory registration on the National Registration of Domestic Violence Abusers
  • Federal gun laws that ban firearm purchase, ownership, and living in a house where a gun is present
  • Immigration consequences that may jeopardize work permits or visas

Domestic violence charges may also impact issues in family courts like child custody and child support.
