Gilbert AZ Domestic Violence Lawyers

The State of Arizona describes domestic violence as an act of abuse by one family member or member of a household to another. While domestic violence is often thought of as doing some sort of physical harm, the crimes are not always violent. In many cases, an individual can be charged with domestic violence simply due to a simple misunderstanding. Domestic violence charges include a handful of abuses including physical, sexual, economic control, emotional, and neglect. Types of crimes that fall under domestic violence include assault, battery, disorderly conduct, kidnapping, criminal trespassing, threatening, and witness intimidation.

Domestic violence cases cannot be dropped if the victim does not want to press charges. In this case, they are considered a witness and cannot drop the charges. This can be especially frustrating, especially if it is due to a misunderstanding. When such charges are filed, they can only be dropped by the prosecutor if approved by the judge.

Charges for domestic violence can vary greatly depending on the crime.
