A: If there is a new allegation of domestic violence, then there can be a new charge as well. Your question is unclear as to what exactly the circumstances are, but you can certainly face new charges if additional allegations are raised.

A: Was the past DV case dismissed in lieu of prosecution pending successful completion of probation terms? Or were you found guilty of the prior DV charge? Are you currently denying in this case any past history of DV? More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue.
