Williamsburg Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

Domestic Assault Charges in Virginia

According to Virginia statute § 18.2-57.2, criminal domestic violence (CDV) is any act that involves force, violence, or threat of violence resulting in assault & battery against a household member. Penalties include a Class 1 misdemeanor carrying up to 1 year in jail and/or up to $2.5k in fines.

Per Virginia law, family or household members can include:

  • Spouses
  • Ex-spouses
  • 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 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.
