Yes.. Domestic Assault Charges are very easy to swear out by either the alleged victim or a LEO. It is a very difficult crime to defend against, and you will need a competent attorney. That Misdemeanor is worse than some Felonies. And it is the State's Case, not the victim's.
Charges are said to b Agg. Assault, vandalism times 2, violation of order of protection, Arrest 2 prior times, no bond, jail does not have paperwork/warrants, circuit court only meets once a month, arrested this time on july 18th
Apparently either you got convicted or it was dismissed and you failed to expunge it. You seem to think that it was only a charge, which would not be a firearm disability. Hire a competent attorney to find the Warrant, discover its disposition, and expunge it if it was dismissed. Then reapply...Read more »
If the alleged victim witness does not appear in Court, the Court might dismiss it or continue it. If the Case goes before the Gran Jury, an Indictment may or may not be returned. It is a class c felony. If you said something incriminating, it will be used against you unless you file a...Read more »
You cannot go there right now. Sometimes the ex parte Order allows you to get a LEO to go with you, but if that is not in there, you cannot. At the Hearing, try to get the Judge to make such an Order within a day or two of the entry.
If you are convicted, it will be on all databases forever. A warrant/indictment needs to be defended against to the absolute maximum ability of the lawyer and defendant to do so. Do not plead guilty to domestic assault under any circumstances except with diversion. If it was dismissed, then $700...Read more »
Both of you need competent attorneys. Do not talk about the incident to anyone, and do not post messages on the internet, phone, etc. Do not plead guilty to Domestic Assault under any circumstances unless it is Diversion. Even try it if you have to. A Conviction will destroy your life.
My boyfriend should have never been charged I said multiple times I cannot wait until August 18th for the court date the case hasn’t even been filed my son and daughter miss their father my son wakes up every night crying for his dad I want this to be done
Assuming you are the alleged victim/witness, you must understand that it is the State's Case, not yours. The Defendant needs a competent attorney to apparently get the Bail reduced and represent him. He should never plead guilty to Domestic Assault under any conditions except Diversion....Read more »
I have an order of protection for me and my children he is in jail looking at prison time for drugs. I have now been seeing my boyfriend for a few months and he wants us to move in with him to keep us safe. My husband has told me many times the only way I was leaving him is in a body bag. But...

You talk about your divorce in your question. Have you filed for divorce? If you have, then I would talk to your attorney about how to proceed. If you have not filed, then I would get an attorney and file as soon as possible.
my nephews i guess now ex keeps knowingly violating the order of protection.My mom has run her off several times.now last night she had him arrested for violating.there both at fault.But she gets off scott free.
Generally, there are 2 ways that our firm does orders of protection. If you need one immediately, and you are not in litigation, then you usually go to the local police department. If the order is violated, you can call the police to arrest the person in violation. If you have an order of...Read more »
In my face which was not true at all ! & I had stated right then to the police that he didn't do that & they wouldnt listen to me & still said they were giving him domestic violence we already have court in 2 months , & I don't want to press any charges against him at this... Read more »
I'm unsure whether he will be able to bond out but you can call the jail and see if there is a bond. Keep in mind that if he is bonded out he will likely have bond conditions that forbid him from having contact with you (the victim). He will need to hire an attorney to gather all the...Read more »
Contact a divorce attorney in the county you live in immediately. An experienced attorney should be able to assist you with asking the Judge to order your Husband to leave the home if such an option seems viable. At least this is true under Tennessee law. I am unsure which law would apply to your...Read more »
When you file the complaint for divorce your husband will be served the papers. If you fear he will get violent then I wouldn't be alone with him. Try to make arrangements to stay somewhere else. Don't put yourself in a potentially dangerous situation.
I can only assume that DVO means a domestic violence order. There are exceptions if what you are referring to is an order of protection action, however you need the assistance of an experienced family law attorney. Do not respond with any specifics of any allegations as social media such as this...Read more »
He has taken the information off my license and has my social security number and has already set up a credit karma account for me. I am in a program in which the government assigned me an address. But I’m afraid of him using my information when it comes to tax time (since I can legally claim the... Read more »
You will probably not go to jail but you do need to call and straighten out the details. I would call the DA office and talk to the DA or witness coordinator about the issue. If they wont talk to you then make sure to give all the details on the defendant's court date. You will be the main...Read more »
