Domestic Violence Protecting Your Freedom

Clarksville Domestic Violence Attorney

What is Domestic Violence?

Domestic violence is defined as an abusive, violent, or threatening act inflicted by one member of a family or household against another member of the family or household. Since domestic violence involves some sort of assault between spouses, former spouses, family members, roommates or others, emotions can run high. However, you may still be charged with a misdemeanor or felony.

Mandatory Arrests for Domestic Violence

Even after a person becomes the victim of domestic violence, they may not wish to report the violence or file charges. In cases of domestic violence, when the police have been called, they are tasked with immediately removing the individual they believe to be the aggressor.

This means regardless of whether or not you committed an act of domestic violence, you will likely be arrested, based upon the statements of the other party. Should you be released after your arrest and your mandatory 12-hour hold, the court will usually issue a temporary restraining order to keep you away from the alleged victim until the time your case can be heard.

What are the Penalties for Domestic Violence Conviction in Tennessee

In Tennessee, the penalties when an individual is convicted of domestic violence can be harsh, depending on the circumstances and number of previous convictions.
