Q: Can my fiancee beat a simple battery family violence charge if it was my our first argument in 4 years?
I called the police but I dont want to press charges I just wanted them to de-escalate the situation.
I'm not sure what you mean by "beat" the charge. Are you thinking get it dismissed? That depends on the situation. It will more more likely to have a successful outcome with the help of an attorney.
We would be happy to help. Feel free to call us at 770-723-7211.
