Domestic Violence in Virginia
Domestic violence in Virginia is charged as assault and battery against a family or household member. It is considered any act that involves force, violence, or threat of violence that either results in bodily injury to the alleged victim or places the person in fear of serious bodily injury.
Per Virginia law, family or household members can include:
- In-laws that live with you in same residence
- Unmarried persons who have a child together
- People who are co-habiting
- People who have co-habited within the past year and any children they may have
Domestic violence is charged as a Class 1 misdemeanor and carries penalties of up to a year in jail and/or fines of up to $2,500.
Domestic violence cases can be based on false accusations made out of spite, jealousy, or the desire to get the upper hand in a divorce or child custody case. They may lead to the defendant being evicted from his or her home and subject to a restrictive restraining order, as well. Fighting back with the help of an attorney who knows how to handle such matters and how to deal with prosecutors on your behalf is vital.
