The holidays are family time. Unfortunately, it is also during this time that we see family tensions run high, often resulting in harmful domestic violence charges being filed. Domestic violence can be a very serious charge and not something you want to be convicted of, especially if there are children involved. There are always multiple sides to a story, especially when it comes to emotionally heated encounters that result in a domestic violence incident or allegation and working with an experienced Santa Clarita domestic violence attorney can help ensure that your side of the story (along with relevant legal defenses) is properly told. At the Kann California Defense Group, we are here to do just that. Give us a call today if you are dealing with a domestic violence or other criminal charge and let's begin working on your defense today.
Alcohol consumption, financial stress and family gatherings can be a dangerous combination when it comes to a potential domestic violence issue. And all of those things abound during the holiday season. Domestic violence can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the specifics of the encounter. In either case, a Santa Clarita domestic violence conviction carries some pretty serious consequences, including the potential for the following:
- Eviction from your home (if your case involves a restraining order)
- Inability to see your children or limited encounters with your children
- Job loss and the inability to hold certain jobs in the future
- Strained family relationships
- Inability to own or posses firearms for life
- And of course fines and potential jail or prison time
The hardest part about so many of the consequences that come out of a domestic violence conviction is that they have to do with your relationship with some of the people that are most important to you in your life—your children and your loved ones. In many instances, domestic violence is alleged in the midst of a custody battle or impending divorce, making those two very important legal determinations all the more complicated. With that in mind, working with an experienced Ventura domestic violence attorney can help make sure that anything that happens over the holidays does not negatively impact you and the people that matter to you most going forward.
At the Kann California Defense Group we can help you with your domestic violence charge as well as the other charges that often accompany them, such as restraining orders. Time is of the essence with these cases (especially if a restraining order is involved) so do not hesitate to give us a call—day or night, we are here for you. Your first meeting with us is free and confidential so give us a call today to discuss your rights. We look forward to hearing from you.
