Domestic violence/battery cases are different than simple battery cases in that the allegation must be made by the prosecutor that you had some kind of relationship with the other person, where the other person lived with you. The other person can be a spouse, brother, sister, mom, dad, or someone that you knew that you had a relationship with that lived in the same residence as you, even for a short period of time.

Domestic Violence Battery is also different than simple-battery in that if you are convicted of a domestic violence battery, or even if you get a withhold adjudication, then you cannot seal that record like you could with a simple battery case. Additionally, a conviction of domestic violence battery involves the potential loss of your ability to own firearms. Domestic violence battery cases are serious enough that a conviction can affect some of your civil rights.

Domestic violence battery is also a crime alleging violence, which is something you do not want on your record. There are multiple ways for me to handle such a case. Usually the alleged victims do not want to prosecute, and I will be talking to them personally about that to see if they are willing to sign a waiver and see if there are alternative means of handling your case, so that you are able to do a diversion in your case rather than having to worry about going to trial and having an adjudication on your record.
