When a relationship becomes undesirable, for many couples it results in an orderly breakup or divorce. Sometimes when the stress becomes so overwhelming even good people momentarily lose it and commit a violent act to their partner.
Depending on the nature of the assault, it can be treated as either a misdemeanor or felony. Regardless of the level of the crime, anticipate being ordered by the Court to move from your home and have no further contact with your spouse or partner until the case is resolved.
The District Attorney has a specialized division that focuses on domestic violence. The "victim" is immediately contacted by the prosecutors to obtain a statement as to what occurred. By obtaining an immediate statement, the prosecutor will lock in the emotions of the case. However, many times after a snort cooling off period, the facts change and the gravity of the incident significantly decreases. Restraint and talking with the defense attorney first could be the best way to resolve the case.
