Domestic Violence Charges
Chelmsford / Lowell Criminal Defense Lawyer
Have you been arrested and accused of domestic violence?
It is a common accusation, especially from jealous wives and volatile partners. Sometimes a heated marital argument gets out of hand and you lose your cool, or a worried neighbor may call the police after hearing raised voices or loud noises.
Even if you never laid a hand on your spouse, you can still be arrested and charged with domestic violence. These charges can prevent you from living in your home, seeing your children, and enjoying your life. You could suddenly find yourself alienated from your entire life and your reputation ruined—and to make matters worse, it is all based on your spouse’s word.
When this occurs, you need criminal defense attorney Gregory Oberhauser on your side—after all; it will be your word versus theirs.
An example of a domestic violence situation that could lead to charges and a conviction:
Jim and Donna have been married for 10 years and they have 2 children together. One night they got into a loud fight that escalated. During the argument, Donna threw a plate at Jim. In retaliation, Jim punched a hole in the wall. The police were called by a neighbor who overheard the fight. The police immediately arrested Jim and charged him with domestic violence. He is now only allowed to see his children under supervision and he is living in a motel.
You could be arrested and charged with domestic violence for physically assaulting your spouse, stalking an ex-girlfriend, sexually assaulting a partner, verbally threatening a spouse, or emotionally violating a close member of the family.
Most domestic violence charges are considered a misdemeanor, but if you caused serious injuries to your partner, then you could be charged with a felony offense.
