Domestic violence occurs when one inflicts injury upon a spouse, former spouse, cohabitant, former cohabitant, or the mother or father of his or her child. Depending on the severity of the injures, the crime can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor.
Specific acts of domestic violence rarely exist in isolation. Usually, there is a history behind the event that resulted in an arrest, a history that involves specific facts and complex emotions. The successful defense of a domestic violence charge requires the lawyer to fully understand the dynamics of the relationship, both factual and emotional.
