A domestic violence charge is one that can follow you around for years. When the court charges you with a felony assault or a similar charge, you must list charge every time that you apply for a job in the future. We know that things can get out of hand between you and your significant other, which is why we take on so many domestic violence cases in Las Vegas.
The first time that the court charges you, you face up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. The jail time and fines increase with each additional charge. The court can even demand that you attend counseling sessions or a treatment center for drug or alcohol abuse.
We know that a domestic violence charge can seriously impact your future and your present. You might notice that people look at you differently, your children stay away from you and your spouse files for divorce.
