Whenever an alleged crime occurs within a family unit, the government often charges the cases as domestic violence.  Many times, the police do not care if the family members are asking for someone not to get arrested.  Police will arrest someone and allow the case to work itself out in court.  Hire an experienced attorney who knows how to do this!

Special rules applies to domestic violence cases, particularly ones that increase the punishment and have continuing effects well afterwards - like no-contact orders (forcing you to find a new home while these cases are pending), restraining orders, child time-sharing issues, and more.  When handled properly and firmly, these cases are often winnable because of proof issues for the government.  Allow us to expose the government's flaws.
