Serious Consequences Of Domestic Violence Charges

Did a heated argument with a spouse or significant other get out of hand? Was there an arrest? What happens now, and how quickly can you get out of custody?

Get timely answers to your questions by calling 317-978-9779 to speak with a lawyer at Hayes Ruemmele LLC.

Domestic abuse charges can range from misdemeanor to a felony level for strangulation or criminal confinement. If the incident turned violent or a child was in the home, you could also face enhancements. Penalties include protective orders, jail time, court fees and fines but also the loss of your gun rights.

We will review the criminal charges and possible penalties with you. Then we will build a defense strategy that takes into account your goals. If you have a pending divorce case with the issue of child custody, we would take that into consideration. We will argue for dismissal or a reduction in charges if they were overly broad or not supported by the facts.

Our experienced domestic violence lawyers have more than 50 years of combined criminal law experience and often work as a team on your case. We are devoted to obtaining the best possible result and have the experience to go to trial if that is what it takes.

Get Immediate Representation

Time is not on your side if you have been charged with domestic violence. Anything you say could be used against you, and there may be collateral consequences that you might not immediately understand.
