Experience. Guidance. Results.
The most common criminal charges that are related to family law or divorce cases include:
– Failure to Pay Child Support – if you have been ordered to pay child support, and violate that order, you can face jail time. Your wages or bank accounts can be garnished, or property seized. Your professional license can be revoked as well.
– Violation of Order of Protection – the most common crime related to domestic violence charges. Your divorce and child custody case will certainly be affected if convicted. These orders can be temporary or permanent.
– Domestic Violence & Abuse – conviction can lead to jail time, mandatory counseling, loss of professional license and the ability to legally own a firearm.
All too often, we see domestic violence and abuse allegations as attempts by a spouse or co-parent to take revenge for some perceived misbehavior, or to gain an advantage in a divorce or custody battle. One spouse or co-parent may intentionally start a confrontation and then exaggerate or even fabricate the story entirely. And sometimes, a domestic disturbance can just get out of control. Either way, when the police are called, it’s a critical point in a couples relationship which can have lasting effects.
As both family law and criminal defense attorneys, we examine each person’s credibility, coupled with the police report and testimony of witnesses, to develop a strategic defense to prevent a conviction and jail time, as well as taking into consideration the effects on the divorce or custody case.
