Domestic Violence Attorneys in Michigan
Domestic violence charges involve serious accusations. If convicted of domestic violence, you face the possibility of prison, jail, hefty fines and mandatory counseling. Additionally, depending on your circumstances, you could lose the right to see your children and your loved ones and be required to vacate your home. Further, you may suffer a tarnished reputation, damage to your personal relationships, and difficulty keeping or finding employment, housing and financial opportunities.
Michigan law defines domestic violence as abusive behavior (physical, emotional, psychological, sexual and/or economic) directed toward a spouse, former spouse, person in a dating relationship, person with a child in common and/or person living in the same household. The alleged victim need not be “injured” for one to be charged with domestic violence. The penalties in Michigan of being convicted of domestic violence are severe. A first conviction carries up to 93 days in jail and/or $500 fine; a second conviction carries up to 1 year in jail and/or $1,000.00 fine; and a third conviction, which is a felony, carries up 2 years in prison and a $2,500.00 fine.
