Will a domestic violence conviction affect my child custody case?

Excellence is our standard.


      It's very common for a domestic violence case to carry with it family law undertones. That’s why domestic violence cases are worth fighting on a first offense if the allegations are false or the defendant's actions are justified.


     The defendant will almost certainly lose his or her custody case if he or she takes a plea or is found guilty in a domestic violence case. The child custody factors specifically lists domestic violence as a basis for determining child custody. And it doesn’t matter if the child never observed the harm. It also doesn't matter if the act of violence was directed toward the child or the other parent. In other words, if the defendant is convicted, even if he or she pleas under a deferral program, the child custody case gets flushed.


     For many individuals, a domestic violence conviction is simply not an option. A conviction for domestic violence has significant and permanent collateral consequences. You need quality representation from an experienced attorney who will aggressively defend your rights. Give us a call and set up an appointment to see if we're the right law firm for you. We understand the pressure you're under. Let us help relieve some of your stress by pointing you in the right direction.*
