He was arrested four days ago and charged with violation of dvo and probation. He has a court day coming up in four days and also a hearing for revocation of probation. Will he most likely do jail time and have his probation revoked? Will he be let go? Do I have to show up?
She has no felonies or criminal history. We have a history of domestic violence. The DV charge was in 2016 and a DVO was issued and expired 2 years ago. Do you think my P.O will allow us to live together or will it be automatically denied?
It depends greatly on the facts, victim testimony and evidence. Domestic violence cases in Louisville have a special set of prosecutors and are examined very carefully. A felony carries up to five years in prison but these type of charges are on the cusp of a misdemeanor or a felony. I strongly...Read more »

He can’t take your daughter, especially with a DVOpending. You need to stand up to him once and for all. Start by hiring a lawyer to go to the hearing with you. Then, seriously consider filing fir divorce and custody.
The history of domestic violence in snd of itself is sufficient for PO to deny it. It doesn’t matter if the DVO has expired nor does it matter that no contact was not a condition of your parole. It is strictly s subjective judgment call by your PO.

If the judge granted Joint custody with the assault charges pending, there is not likely anything that can be done. If the assault charges occurred after the grant of joint custody, you could move to modify to sole custody if you can show that he presents a danger to the child.

My ex kicked in my door which resulted in a minor injury but I do not want to go to court he has threatened to kill me. He was caught at the scene of the crime. Can he still be convicted without my testimony?
I am asking for a friend. They were granted a DVO from their abusive boyfriend back in May. The boyfriend will not stop retaliating and now his lawyer is trying to have my friend's DVO overturned because the judge was not reelected in the past election. I was wondering if this would be applicable.
