Comprehensive Domestic Violence Representation
Domestic violence cases are complex. If law enforcement is called to investigate a domestic disturbance, someone will be hauled down to jail. Prosecutors will likely file criminal charges, and the parties involved have the option to seek a civil restraining order. Often simple disputes and arguments are the basis for a police response to a residence. A domestic violence charge does not require serious bodily injury in Missouri.
The law gives prosecutors wide authority to file domestic violence charges involving actual acts of violence or the threat of violence against a spouse or former spouse, a family member, a person with whom the defendant shares a child, or a person with whom the defendant resides or previously lived with.
